Spinx Carolina Marathon
The Spinx Carolina Marathon, featuring the Swamp Rabbit Trail between Greenville and Travelers Rest, is a scenic and not-too-hilly course. The race starts before dawn this year, so you’ll be rounding the lake at Furman just after daybreak. Also, a short loop at the north end of the course replaces the turnaround point used in previous events. START 7:15AM
Carolina Marathon Relay
The Carolina Marathon Relay is for two-person teams with each person running a 13.1 mile leg on the same course as the Carolina Marathon. A FREE SHUTTLE will be provided to transport anchor leg runners to the handoff point in Travelers Rest. AGE GROUP AWARDS will be presented based on the combined age of the team. START 7:15AM
Run Town USA Half Marathon
The Run Town USA Half Marathon is our most popular event. This year, we’re running less through downtown and the park, and more through neighborhoods. The HM is hilly as usual and has lots of turns, especially in the park. The course showcases scenic parts of the city and combines many local favorite running routes, making for an interesting run. START 7:45AM
Greenville Downtown 10K
The Greenville Downtown 10K was added in 2012 and is growing more popular by the minute. The 2016 course is new, and like the Half Marathon, incorporates more neighborhood roads than in previous years. The route through the park is much simpler and there is no overlap with the HM. If you’re a middle distance runner looking for a fun, interesting and fast course, the Downtown 10K at Spinx Run Fest is the perfect choice. START 7:45AM
Big Punkin 5K Run/Walk
The Big Punkin 5K has added SUPERHERO competition! To compete, simply check in at the SUPERHERO desk before the race. Any costume with a mask, tights, cape. etc. qualifies. Special awards will go to the top three male and female costumed runners in 10-year age groups. We’ll even accept Darth Vader even though he’s on the dark side. Yes, we’ll also have the usual age-group awards for the entire field of runners! START 8:00AM
Spunky's Kids Run
Spunky’s Kids Run is a one-mile youth run (12 and under). The run starts on Field Street behind the stadium. Runners will go north on Field Street, right on Markley, right on S. Main, right on Augusta Street, right on Field, and enter the stadium via the rear service drive to finish is at the 3rd base dugout. All finishers receive a medal, neon wristband and goodie bag! START 8:05AM
