Information about meets

All meets are held at Chickamauga Dam. See MAP for a general idea of the course. The start and finish are in the flat grassy field right next to Hwy 153. The starting line runs parallel to the lake, right in front of the swimming area.

Directions: Head north on Hwy 153. Take Exit 6, Amnicola Parkway. Turn right at the end of the exit ramp onto Amnicola. Very soon you will come to a stop sign. Turn left onto Kings Point Rd. You will pass a marina on your right and the park is just ahead.

Meet times: 

Jamboree: Girls will start at 5:00. Boys will be started 15 minutes later. This is a practice meet with no places recorded.

All other meets: On Tuesdays, girls start at 5:00, boys at 5:30

On Thursdays, boys start at 5:00, girls at 5:30

For the Jamboree, I would like all athletes to arrive at the park at 4:20. Allow enough time to park and to walk to our meeting place. There is a line of picnic tables under the trees, near the finish. I will arrive early and find a spot in that vicinity for our team to meet. We will all do a warmup together before the race.
