Chilly Bear Chase 5K


3.1 Miles, 2 States, 1 Steelbridge .. a 5K like no other, costumes encouraged!!!

The course takes runners through the charming downtowns of McCaysville and its sister city, Copperhill, Tennessee – two cities united by a state line at the heart of the historical Copper Basin. Covering 3.1 miles, participants will not only cross from Georgia into Tennessee and back into Georgia, but they will also run through the iconic steel bridge, one of few left in America, that spans the Toccoa River (aka Ocoee River in Tennessee).

The series was created by the McCaysville Business Association, a non-profit organization, to further the goal of fostering economic, cultural and social growth within the community. Drive up for the day or spend the weekend with family and friends in nearby Blue Ridge or lease one of the many area cabins for an unforgettable North Georgia getaway weekend. Food, drinks and music can be found before and after the race on the river deck of Riverwalk Shops, located across the street from the starting line. Parking will be plentiful and free across from the McCaysville City Park.

Spend the weekend in a cabin for an unforgettable North Georgia mountain getaway weekend.

Hosted by the McCaysville Business Association.
