As of this morning, registration for the Rock/Creek Scenic City Trail Marathon has reached its limit of 200 runners, and the Half Marathon has 50 slots remaining out of 300. With over 400 runners already signed up for the Trail Marathon and Half Marathon, the 2011 event is already destined to be a minimum of 20% larger than last year's race, and registration will close completely when the limit of 500 runners is reached.

The Scenic City Trail Marathon is the largest and most competitive trail marathon in the South. Elite trail runners from at least 18 states will be in attendance, including favorites Josh Wheeler, Josh Hite, Matt Sims, Aaron Saft, and Sam Linhoss. Favorites on the women's side include Annette Bednosky, Sarah Woerner, and Malinda Honkus.

Rock/Creek is also pleased to announce that race results will be published in conjunction with Ultra Signup (ultrasignup.com), beginning with this race. Ultra Signup has collected all of the Rock/Creek Trail Series results, making it easier for runners to size up the competition. The top 3 finishers from the 2010 Scenic City Trail Marathon will receive bib numbers 1, 2 and 3, while bib numbers 4 through 50 will be assigned based on Ultra Signup's pre-race rankings.

There will be some changes to the course layout this year, most noticeably with a lengthening of the road section to start the race. This paved section should reduce potential bottlenecks significantly. Already one of the fastest trail marathons in the country, the adjustment will likely speed things up even more. An updated course map for the 2011 race, along with full race details, can be found by visiting www.rockcreek.com/trailmarathon.rco and clicking the “course” tab.

The Rock/Creek Scenic City Trail Marathon and Half Marathon take place on May 21, 2011, with the race beginning at 8 AM. Sponsors include Vasque, Marmot, Smartwool, Toyota, Salomon, Patagonia, Hammer Nutrition, The North Face, Greenlife Grocery and Outdoor Research.

All proceeds from the event go to Wild Trails, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the use, protection and expansion of trails in the greater Chattanooga area.
