Corporate Chattanooga embraces local marathon

The Chattanooga Marathon Planning Committee (CMPC) last week announced two community partnerships for the inaugural 2016 Chattanooga Marathon – Erlanger Health System has signed on as the title sponsor and BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee as the presenting sponsor. The official name of the event is now the Erlanger Chattanooga Marathon presented by BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee.

The Erlanger Chattanooga Marathon presented by BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee will be held March 4-6, 2016, and will include an expo, kids fun run, 5K, team relay, and a half and full marathon. The never-competed-on courses feature scenic views throughout a dozen neighborhoods including the Downtown, North Shore and St. Elmo areas.

This event was strategically placed in the spring to maximize local participation and to drive visitors to Hamilton County.

The Chattanooga Marathon is much more than a race. The race and the events surrounding it are a celebration of healthy living, which we are proud to support as presenting sponsor,” said Dawn Abel, director of community relations for BlueCross.
