Finisher’s Medals

In 2007, the race introduced a series of commemorative marathon finisher’s medals. Each year the marathon finisher’s medal features a different state monument located in the battlefield. This year’s commemorative marathon finisher’s medal will feature Pennsylvania.

The Pennsylvania Volunteer Cavalry was recognized as one of the most respected in the Civil War. In September, 1863, the Seventh Pennsylvania Volunteer Cavalry is credited with opening and closing the Battle of Chickamauga. The command is noted for its unusual bravery and received praise from the commander of the army and from the commanders of division and brigade.

During the Chickamauga campaign during the late summer of 1863, the Ninth Calvary regiment fought in several skirmishes and captured part of the advance guard of Lt. Gen. James Longstreet’s corps. During the Battle of Chickamauga, it guarded the right flank of the Union arm.

Pennsylvania Monument

Previous marathon medals featured monuments from the following states:

  • Tennessee (2010)
  • South Carolina (2009)
  • Michigan (2008)
  • Georgia (2007)

Race Course

The marathon, which starts and finishes at the 6th Cavalry museum located near the park’s visitor’s center, features two loops in the Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park.

The mostly paved course is challenging but not extraordinarily difficult. Numerous runners have qualified for the Boston Marathon on this course. Results will be provided to the Boston Athletic Assoc. Approximately 23 miles of the double loop portion of the course winds through the historic military park. Traffic is usually light in the park. Sentries will be posted at each major turn and all turns will be marked. Each mile and the half marathon point will be marked.
