CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee - The Chattajack is a 31-mile SUP/Kayak race in Chattanooga, Tennessee with the Chattajack course running the length of the Tennessee River gorge. The course twists and turns through a gorge with walls rising on both sides of racers 800+ feet overhead. Chattajack is way more than just a race for many of its participants, racers have spent much time preparing to put it all on the line come race day. While the participants are red-lining for 31 miles, Chattajack volunteers and organizers celebrate, spoil, and reward every racer on the water. Chattajack is unique in that it doesn’t offer monetary rewards to podium finishers. Instead, it just spoils everyone who crosses the finish line.
Following the 2016 Chattajack (held in October), one participant edited together an incredible video highlighting the race and one’s journey and dedication to take part in it. Have a look at the documentary-style video below.
