Freeze Your Half Off is a half marathon put on by Run Chattanooga! It will probably be cold. It will probably be REALLY cold. But bad conditions sometimes make for the best stories.
No frills. No prizes. No pressure. No time limit. No whining. Run Saturday or Sunday or BOTH! Both days races start at 8am.
Due to new restrictions being placed on this event by the Riverpark, we have added a $5 registration fee. We simply cannot cover the costs of the things that they are now requiring from us without this small fee. Due to no-shows and other unrecoupable costs, this fee is non-refundable. The fee is waived for any 4+ hour volunteers who help at Burn Your Half Off or Run Amok, or for anyone who pre-purchases a race shirt.
If you want to run fewer than 13.1 miles, but you want a whole lot of company doing it, you're welcome to join in! This will be Chattanooga's biggest group run. Walkers are welcome too! It's all about connecting with your fellow runners, building community, and accomplishing goals. Registered participants will receive a finish time and distance on the official results.
Run Chattanooga and Run Tennessee gear will be available for purchase on site. This race is the first in the Run Chattanooga 2017 series medal!
Event updates, hotel shares, and more will be available at this link.
Post-race food is potluck - bring something to share! We will have water and gatorade, but we need YOU to bring a water bottle or cup, as well as any energy gels you think you'll need. You will pass the main aid station about every 2.5 miles, so you're welcome to leave your cup or water bottle on one of the tables at the aid station while you're out running. Drop bags are permitted.
As we've done in years past, please hang onto your old running shoes and bring them with you to donate to the Community Kitchen. This race meets all requirements to count toward Half Fanatics.
VOLUNTEERS ARE ESSENTIAL to this event! No previous volunteer experience is necessary, and you don't have to be a runner to volunteer! Most volunteer jobs aren't strenuous, and simply require a smiling face and a positive attitude. Volunteer hours count toward Run Chattanooga volunteer incentives.
If you enjoy free events, please register or volunteer for the Raccoon Mountain Marathon, Half Marathon, Double Half and Relay or Run Amok, also produced by Run Chattanooga. Proceeds from thaevent fund free events like this one, as well as free workouts and group runs all year long.
