2017 GHS Half Marathon & 5K Event Details Posted Here

GHSRabbitLogoThe Half Marathon is a USA Track & Field certified (SC16017DW) point-to-point race starting in Travelers Rest, SC and finishing downtown Greenville, SC. Flat and Fast Course for the Half Marathon – run mostly on the Swamp Rabbit Trail (great for a Personal Record). The course offers a net LOSS in elevation – making for the opportunity to run a very fast race.  The Half Marathon will be gun and chip timed.

The 5K course is a USA Track & Field certified (SC16018DW) route through Downtown Greenville.  Starting at the Swamp Rabbit Cafe, this course will take runners on a point to point journey along the swamp rabbit trail and into downtown before finishing at the TD Stage at the Peace Center along the Reedy River.  This 5K course is also a net downhill event and a great way to join in the festivities of the GHS Half Marathon event.
