Jordan Yeager, age 23, achieved first place in her age group at the Rock/Creek Stump Jump 50k on October 4, 2014. The 31-mile trail run climbs Signal Mountain in Chattanooga as part of its 4440 feet of total climbing. She completed it in 7:26:58 and was all smiles when she crossed the finish line where her dad, Jeff Yeager, was waiting.
Jordan was 232rd out the 323 finishers. There were seven runners who finished under five hours. One hundred of the runners finished in the 7 hour time frame along with Jordan. Full results are HERE
The pictures from some of the spots on the course look amazing, see below. Blogger, jaycurwen.com, describes the race and event like this, “And if the awesome atmosphere wasn’t enough, there is the course itself…Signal Mountain offers some of the most unforgiving, yet spectacular, terrain in the south…quad busting climbs in and out of “Suck Creek”, swinging bridges, giant panoramic views of Chattanooga and the Tennessee River, super cool rock features like “The Mushroom”, “Indian Rockhouse” and “The Rock Garden”…How could it not be fun?”
Jordan grew up in north Columbia and is currently attending Mercer University in graduate studies in Atlanta.
