Planet Fitness of Chattanooga: Runathon 2018

12 hours. 51.33 miles…and over $6,500 for our kids! Ultra-runner Trinity Smith ran in honor of the thousands of kids treated at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger through the inaugural Planet Fitness of Chattanooga Runathon event on December 11. While Trinity selflessly ran for 12 hours on the treadmill at the Lee Hwy gym, Planet Fitness members at Hixson, Fort Oglethorpe, Lee Hwy, Cleveland and Dalton locations ran along with Trinity for 30-minute increments throughout the day–all in support of Children’s.

At Lee Hwy, the day ended with live broadcasts from Sunny 92.3 FM, decorated CMN Hospitals-inspired treadmills, Runathon t-shirts, and a live DJ.

“Children’s Hospital at Erlanger is an important piece of our community, and Planet Fitness is proud to give back to this organization,” says Cambrie Gagliardi, director of marketing for Planet Fitness Chattanooga locations.

Thank you Planet Fitness of Chattanooga for such a fun and impactful event!
