Chattajack is set apart from similar races by its length. Its distance calls for athletes who have committed to their training and to their pursuit of endurance. The course is one that requires preparation, but is sure to be a fun, rewarding experience. Chattajack is comprised of a community of people who come together to commemorate a true love for this sport. They inspire one another, cheer each other on, and at the end of the day, they revel in the beauty of a shared victory.
