7 Bridges Marathon


October 20, 2019

The 7 Bridges Marathon will begin in Coolidge Park on the North Shore of Chattanooga. Crossing the Market Street Bridge, the race will lead runners on a scenic tour of downtown Chattanooga’s bridges and riverside neighborhoods.

The half marathon course (13.1 miles) will accompany the full marathon (26.2 miles) over three bridges, splitting off at the Chattanooga Food Bank on the Tennessee Riverwalk. While the half will return over the Walnut Street Bridge and finish in Coolidge Park, the full marathon will continue over three more bridges (the C.B. Robinson, Thrasher, and Riverpark Bridges, respectively) before returning downtown to cross Walnut for the Coolidge Park finish. Come on and race!

The 5k Race

The 5k race will start at 7:45 am after the marathon start. Enter and get an abbreviated tour of Downtown Chattanooga while still crossing two of the seven bridges. Come get a taste of 7 Bridges or just kill time while your loved ones burn up the Full or Half Marathon and earn the 2 Bridges finishers medal.
