We're proud to present the 2014 highlight reel from 5 years of shooting the Salomon Rock/Creek Trail Series in Chattanooga, TN. http://www.rockcreek.com/ra...
Race proceeds benefit Wild Trails, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit that puts on the race series. The money ends up expanding trails in the Chattanooga area as well as helping to keep up the many trails we run on throughout the year. We have two grant cycles per year with five recipients. Visit http://www.wildtrails.org for more information and to get involved.
This trail running race series is one of the world's premiere trail racing series, covering everything from a 6 mile trail run to a 100 mile point-to-point trail ultramarathon. One question keeps coming back: Why do people do this? Our answer: It's the Distance.

Join independent retailer Rock/Creek, their nonprofit Wild Trails, and awesome sponsor Salomon running, for a year-round trail running race series in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The races were designed to hit up all the awesome trails surrounding Chattanooga. These trail races are also spread out throughout the year, with distances from just a few miles all the way up to the new 100 miler. We've compiled some videos for you here on this channel that are a mix of race reportage and some simple "how-to" videos, like our "How to Begin Trail Running Training" video with local mom and runner Laura Davis. We hope you enjoy these, and always we appreciate the thumbs up and hit that "subscribe" button!
When you're ready to take your training to the next level, join us at http://www.rockcreek.com/race.rco for all the Salomon Rock/Creek Trail Series dates and registration. We generally open registration for all the races sometime in January (for 2014 it was Jan. 15th) and then they'll sell out through the year depending on distance and timing. Generally the Chattanooga Mountains Stage Race will be the first to sell out. This year we added the Thunder Rock 100 mile trail run, which sold out in two short days, so if you're thinking about that one you're going to want to stay in touch and keep a close eye on registration dates.
Wild Trails and the Salomon Rock/Creek Trail Series love to see new trail runners challenging themselves, so we sought out advice from our friends and experts to distill the best advice we think you need as you train for a trail marathon. These are designed to be easy, quick tips that can help make your experience on the trail as good as it can be. All you have to do is get out and train! Enjoy, and be sure to sign up for our marathon too! We'll see you in Chattanooga: http://www.rockcreek.com/trailmarathon.rco
