We get asked this question all the time, and there’s actually a bunch of reasons that we think you’ll agree with! Fall Air Temps – The air temperatures in the Tennessee River Gorge during the fall are typically ideal. It may be a little cool certain days but it definitely won’t be blazing hot. Summertime temperatures in the gorge will hover in the high 90’s for weeks/months. Add in the humidity and the heat index is often well over 100 degrees. Not ideal for a distance race.
Chattajack veteran Miriam Sutton, from Beaufort, NC, recently ventured to Antarctica. After having dreamt of venturing across Drake Passage, south of Patagonia, Miriam finally got her ticket. She spent a week in Antarctica hiking across ice shelfs, snow-covered mountains, exploring waterways via zodiac and taking in the wildlife. She saw lots of penguins, seals, and whales (Orcas, Sei, Fin, and Humpback). Keep an eye out for Miriam’s photo exhibit coming out in February along
