Ironman and 5 other things to do in Walker County this weekend

Chickamauga, GA – Ironman Chattanooga returns to Walker County this weekend, as the bike portion of the triathlon will once again roll through our community.

Downtown Chickamauga is an official viewing area for the bike race.  Ironman runs a free shuttle from Ross’s Landing in Chattanooga to downtown Chickamauga from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., bringing hundreds of visitors to the city.  Also, many of the merchants in downtown Chickamauga will be open and additional food vendors will be setting up shop too.

Here’s a look at where the athletes will be riding, so you can plan ahead to avoid traffic issues.
