“Staying with friends, only better” TripAdvisor review December 2012
“This is an absolutely beautiful B&B! There are 18 different rooms with varying amenities, all of which are lovely. The grounds are charming, well maintained with lovely landscaping. There is impeccable attention to detail throughout from patio chairs outside each room, swings, treats in the main inn, just every possible need and want attended to already. The owners are present and live onsite, always available if they are needed. It is evident how much they love this place and that is passed on to the employees and guests. Breakfasts are delicious! The property is peaceful and quiet, just outside of Rock City. This was our first stay at a B&B, and we are hooked! Thank you to Audrey and Rob, the owners, for everything. We will definitely be back!”

Chickamauga Battlefield Marathon

October 5th, 2011 by avelient

Event Information

Start/Finish: 6th Cavalry Museum in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia. (directions)

Registration

The marathon has sold out, but several charity slots are available through www.RunForMiracles.org (select “Miracle Team”).

The marathon has reached its limit of 700 participants. Regular registration is now closed and there is no wait list. Only charity slots remain.

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.

 

The Chanticleer Inn Bed & Breakfast still has rooms available. Please visit our website at: www.stayatchanticleer.com or call us direct at

(706) 820-2002. We are located 10 minutes from downtown Chattanooga, 20 minutes from the Chickakauga Battlefield and a mountain top away.

“Putting this issue together is always a tough process when choosing between a number of truly great places. This year we tried something new and allowed the Outside community to help us in the decision making process,” said Outside Editor Chris Keyes. “In addition to possessing all of the great qualities that we look for in determining the quality of life, Chattanooga was a town that everyone rallied to support.”

In addition to featuring the “Best Town Ever” and the towns selected as finalists, Outside’s October 2011 issue highlights a number of cities classified as the “next-big-things,” including: Issaquah, WA; Missoula, MT; Wilmington, NC; Durango, CO; Traverse City, MI; Flagstaff, AZ; Chico, CA;Hardwick, VT and Ithaca, NY.
