Run one of the largest trail marathons in the Southeast, taking place on the fast, hard-packed dirt mountain bike trails of TVA's Raccoon Mountain. Be sure to watch our marathon training tips videos. We'll release 7 videos, one a week leading up to the marathon. Starting on a short section of road to thin out the pack of 500+ runners, the race course is almost completely single track, with rolling hills, many twists and turns, some excellent views of the Tennessee River and plenty of rocks and roots along the way. This course is flatter and smoother than many of the rugged, rocky local trails used in our other Salomon Rock/Creek Trail Series races making the Scenic City Trail Marathon a great choice for road marathoners wanting to try a trail marathon, or experienced trail runners in the hunt for a new PR. Race proceeds benefit Wild Trails.
