7 State Records Set at Market St. Mile

Chattanooga, TN – 7 new state running records were set at today’s BlueCross Market Street Mile in downtown Chattanooga, TN.

The 3rd annual BlueCross Market Street Mile featured a fast, u-shaped race course designed to encourage runners to test their abilities against current state records in their own age and gender groups. 224 runners, ranging in ages from 3 to 86, completed the mile race.

The event also featured an un-timed “kiddie K” and the family friendly Mystery History Quest walk. Participants in the Mystery History Quest walk charted their way through downtown Chattanooga by solving historical clues.

The event also marked the launch of the Chattanooga Track Club’s Chickamauga Battlefield Junior Marathon. Elementary school age children are eligible to take part in the event, which runs through the summer and fall and culminates in a special event at the annual Chickamauga Battlefield Marathon on Saturday, November 8, 2008.

To participate in the junior marathon children need a parent to register them for the event and they need to pick up an official Chickamauga Battlefield Junior Marathon log sheet. Then, over the course of several months, children will run, jog, or walk a total of 25.2 miles at their own pace. Children can divide up the distance in any way they like; they just need to complete a total of 25.2 miles with adult supervision. The final mile of the junior marathon will be completed during the Chickamauga Battlefield Marathon in November. More information about the Chickamauga Battlefield Junior Marathon is available at
