Chattanooga, Tennessee (March 14, 2016) — The Chattanooga Track Club announced the 49th Annual Chattanooga Chase: 8k and 1 mile road race, which is presented by Fast Break Athletics and Chattanooga Whiskey. The race will take place this Memorial Day, Monday May 30th 2016. The 8k race will start at 8:00am and the 1 mile race will start at 9:45am.
The Chattanooga Chase is the oldest active competitive road race in the area. This year’s event will feature an 8k and 1 mile race through the scenic North Shore neighborhoods. The 8k is known for its challenging hills and breathtaking scenery. The 1 mile race features a fairly flat, fast course through the neighborhood adjacent to Chattanooga Golf and Country Club. The event will be followed by a post-race picnic a Riverview Park. Good Dog will be providing hot dogs and Chattanooga Whiskey and Chattanooga Brewing Company will provide refreshments.
This race has an outpouring of community involvement. The race’s sponsors include, Fast Break Athletics, Chattanooga Whiskey, Rock Creek, Good Dog, and Chattanooga Brewing Company. The race is also paying homage to its past by t-shirt design that is reminiscent of the original Chattanooga Chase. All participants will be given the option to receive one of these shirts as a high-quality ringer tee and the top 50 finishers of the 8k and the top 50 of the 1 mile will each receive an additional ‘top finisher’ shirt.
“It’s really exciting to be working with the Track Club to put on this year’s Chattanooga Chase,” said Fast Break Athletics Owner, Alan Outlaw. “It’s a great example of our community getting involved but also us honoring the rich running heritage that we have.”
The proceeds for the race will go to the Chattanooga Track Club Elementary Cross Country league. To register for this event, visit:www.chattanoogachase2016.c

Model: Mirage 2
I am now in my 4th pair of the Mirage, two of them being the first model. I loved the Mirage 1 the moment I put it on. Seemed to hold up really well up to 300 miles. I wore them for work after I was done running in them, and they still felt fine, but the upper started to rip slightly at the small toe. When I tried the Mirage 2 on for the first time the cushioning in the forefoot felt “bumpy”. After a few runs, that feeling went away and it felt like the old one. I just got my 2nd pair of the 2’s, and ran in them about 5 times before the Chickamauga Battlefield Marathon. They felt good through the whole race. I have worn them for 5k’s as well and like them for any distance. My first pair of the 2’s now has almost 400 miles and the upper seems to be holding up a lot better than the Mirage 1.
I wear this shoe for all my training and racing and love how light and responsive it is.
