imATHLETE Greenway Challenge Hixson, Tennessee, USA May 08, 2010
Or more so what Dave is doing on Saturday, running (and biking and kayaking) in another adventure race. This one is in Chattanooga, we are heading down there the night before with Dave's race partner, Andrew and his family. This race actually publishes the map ahead of time so Dylan and I, and Andrew's wife Nina and kids can hopefully watch at a few points.
The last race that Dave and Andrew (and our friend Jesse) ran was the Knoxville Urban Wilderness Challenge in March. They all had a great time and finished 15th out of 45 teams, not bad for their first race. While they all thought the race was tough they had a great time and immediately started looking for other adventure races to particpate in. Which has brought us to the North Chick Greenway Challenge 2010.
We haven't been to Chattanooga before and we are staying in the Hamilton Place area which is fairly close to the aquarium and other attractions so it should be a lot of fun. The winners of last years race finished in a little under 2 hours so hopefully we will have time to visit the aquarium before we head back to Knoxville on Saturday night.
I'll let you all know how the race goes and hopefully get some good photos to post!
