February 28, 2015:
The Half Marathon is a USA Track & Field certified 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 route through Downtown Greenville. Starting and Finishing on E. McBee Ave at the Half Marathon finish location, this course will take runners along Main Street, over the Reedy River and past Fluor Field before the turn around at the intersection of Main and Augusta Streets. This 5K course is a great way to tour downtown Greenville and join in the festivities of the GHS Half Marathon event.
