Jfest 5K and Kiddie K

...benefiting Volunteers in Medicine

Do you want to race with an Olympian? Can you beat the US record holder for the Half Marathon distance? Then come join us as Ryan and Sara Hall will be joining us for the Jfest 5k and Kiddie K to be held at Chattanooga State on Saturday, May 18th. The beautiful course which runs along the TN River is flat and fast so you can achieve that 5K PR! Runners will get an awesome view of the TN River and the Jfest stage as they run along the TN Riverwalk.

All 5K runners and walkers will receive a high quality custom finishers medal, t-shirt, and a ticket to J-Fest! Special VIP packages are available which will include an autographed race bib and photo with Ryan and Sara.

All proceeds from this race will be used to support the services offered by Volunteers in Medicine, a free health clinic for low-income, uninsured residents of Hamilton and surrounding counties.
