Saturday, October 12, 2013 is the fantastic and unusual running experience, Stringer's Ridge's Urban Nature 10k, which showcases Stringer's Ridge. This beautiful treasure in North Chattanooga has been protected through the efforts of The Trust for Public Land, Tennessee River Gorge Trust and the City of Chattanooga. "We are excited to partner for this race," said Jim Brown and Rick Wood, Executive Directors of TRGT and TPL. "The potential that Stringer's Ridge has for our community is enormous. Chattanooga is fortunate to have such a wonderful wild space located so close to town. The race will allow people to experience this unique spot first-hand."
Run the trails near and on the ridge to make for a challenging 10k course. The race will begin and end near the Stringer's Ridge Preservation Easement. The cost for each participant is $35. All entry fees, sponsorship dollars and proceeds will go directly to partners, The Trust for Public Land and Tennessee River Gorge Trust, the non-profit organizations responsible for this fine network of trails in our backyard.

The top three overall male and female will receive awards from Newton Running, Goodhew and Fast Break Athletics.
