Harrison Bay State Park is the oldest park in the Tennessee State Park system, originally developed in the 1930s. The Run Amok course was developed in collaboration with Harrison Bay State Park ranger staff.

Run Amok Chattanooga Harrison Bay Awesmesauce Ultramarathon Trail Race

We use a mostly trail course, including packed dirt, some  more technical sections with roots and rocks, crushed gravel, and grass. The course is best described as mostly gently rolling hills. Much of the course is wide enough for runners to run two-across; some sections are wider. Approximately 4 miles runs along Harrison Bay, on the dedicated trail.


The entire loop is 6.65 miles long, making it an even 2 loops for half marathoners, 4 for marathoners. 5K, 10K, 50K, 50 mile, 100K, and 100 miles runners will have a marked out-and-back section that will get their mileage up to the correct distance. This is not and will not be a certified course. The distance is correct. Please understand that when running under tree cover and near water, GPS can and has inaccurately measured this course. We have done the course while wearing and using multiple GPS devices at the same time and have come up with multiple distances, which is why we measure from the ground. Particularly if you use a phone app, you are much more likely to show a longer course. If your GPS reads long – we won’t charge you extra. If your GPS reads short, you’re welcome to keep running.

Run Amok Chattanoga Awesomesauce Ultramarathon

You will not be able to find a trail half marathon, marathon, or ultramarathon in this area with this flat of an elevation profile. This race DOES meet all qualifications for Half Fanatics, Marathon Maniacs, and the 50 States Club. This race is USATF sanctioned and is timed.

A portion of each runner’s registration fee will be donated to Harrison Bay State Park specifically earmarked for trail maintenance and upgrades. We’re excited about Harrison Bay’s plans for upgrading these trails, and we can’t wait to help them make them happen!
