Long before the sun peaked over the Tennessee River on Labor Day morning, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women’s soccer team and several members of the cross country team arrived at Chattanooga State on Amnicola Highway for the annual 5K/10K for FCA Road Race.
The soccer team was spread out along the course which started at Chattanooga State, headed west on Amnicola highway before finding its way to the Tennessee Riverwalk. Members of the men’s and women’s cross country teams met the participants at the finish line with bottled water.
UTC women’s tennis head coach Jeff Clark returned for another year of running in the 5K as did former assistant cross country and track and field coach Katie Stanford.
Both teams have participated in this community service event for many years that takes place on Labor Day.
