  2. The 9th annual Rock/Creek StumpJump 50k and 11 mile trail race took place the first weekend of October in 2010. Beautiful blue skies greeted the 600+ racers on Signal Mountain, outside of Chattanooga, TN. Trail runners from all over the country came in to test themselves on what Trail Runner Magazine called "the East's legendary meat grinder."

    Taking place on the Cumberland Trail on Signal Mountain and in Prentice Cooper WMA, the popular ultramarathon drew top talent and beginners alike.

    Rock/Creek hosted a vendor fair and carbo supper on Friday night before the race, as part of an inaugural week-long outdoor festival called RiverRocks Chattanooga.

  4. Now in it's 9th year running, the Rock/Creek StumpJump is gaining national recognition and prestige as one of the top 50k trail runs in the country, with racers from 20 states in attendance. This year's race will go down in Rock/Creek Trail Series history as the beginning of something tremendous for Southeast trail running, acting as a magnet for running talents and sponsored athletes such as Dean Karnazes (The North Face), Krissy Moehl and Bryan Dayton (Vasque) as well as hometown heroes like Josh Wheeler and Jaclyn Greenhill. Moehl, who also represents Patagonia, had just come from a victory at the Tour de Mont Blanc, and decided not to race but was on hand to volunteer.

    Thanks to all volunteers and especially the race sponsors! Rock/Creek, SmartWool, Salomon, The North Face, Marmot, Vasque Project, Hammer Nutrition, Patagonia, La Sportiva, Deuter, Columbia, END Footwear, Greenlife Grocery, Trail Runner Magazine, and Southern Sprint Water.
