If you are unable to participate, you may give your race number to another person. We do not give refunds or deferrals (rain checks).

Do you offer group discounts?

Yes, for groups of 15 or more. Please contact the race director for instructions.

How do I sign up as a Corporate Shield participant

Sorry but the Freedom Flyer 2-Miler is not a Corporate Shield event. We're working on it!

TIMING, RESULTS AND AWARDS

When will results be posted?

The results will be available at the AWARDS BOOTH adjacent to the Falls Park stage. Official results will be posted ON THIS WEBSITE as soon as they become available.

Who do I contact with questions about the results?

Awards will be given out at the awards ceremony, scheduled for 9:30am at the Falls Park stage.

Are awards based on GUN TIME or CHIP TIME?

All awards are determined by GUN TIME.

RACE COURSE

Where can I see a map of the course?

The course map is displayed under the "FAQs" section on the EVENT page on this website.

Is the course hilly?

The first mile is uphill and the second mile is downhill - the ideal arrangement. The slopes are gradual, not steep.

Where are the restrooms and/or portable toilets?

There are portable toilets near the start line on Main Street. On account of the short race distance, there are no portable toilets on the course.

Where are the aid stations (water stops)?

There is bottled water at the finish line. On account of the short race distance, there are no aid stations (water stops) on the course.

POST RACE ACTIVITIES

What's going on after the race?

We will have refreshments and music in Falls Park after the race. The free Main Street Kids Run will start around 9:15. The awards ceremony will happen at 9:30.

When and where is the Kids Run?

The FREE Main Street Kids Run will begin at the start line in front of Starbucks at 9:15am. All finishers (except parents) will get a souvenir and a treat.

EVENT GUIDELINES

What happens if you have to cancel the event?

If we have to cancel the event due to severe weather, emergencies, or other safety issues, we will not give refunds but will offer discounts for next year’s race. Shirts will be given out to all registrants, or put at a location where registrants can pick them up at their convenience.

Can I participate with a baby jogger or stroller?

Yes. Running with a baby jogger or walking with a baby stroller is allowed. Please start toward the back and yield the right-of-way to faster runners.

Can I run with my dog?

Sorry, no dogs (except service animals) are allowed in Falls Park or on the race courses during the event.

Where can I pick up my unclaimed shirt, souvenir or award?

Unclaimed shirts, souvenirs and awards will be taken to Run In at 1942 Augusta Street. They will be available for you to pick up starting on Wednesday morning (April 5), and will be kept on the premises for around six weeks. Later they will disappear to the backroom at GTC headquarters, the donation box at Goodwill, or the huge junk pile at the race director's house. Sorry, we don't mail out leftover shirts, souvenirs or awards.

Furman University

The Swamp Rabbit Trail (SRT) in Greenville, SC is a rails-to-trail greenway stretching from Travelers Rest to Lake Conestee Nature Park, a distance of 21 miles. The Carolina Marathon sponsored by Spinx has used the SRT for many years, but the course has always been out and back from Greenville to Travelers Rest. 2017 marks the first year for going "point to point" and the race name has been changed to the Swamp Rabbit Marathon on account of the new route using more of the SRT than ever before.

Lake Conestee Nature Park

This Event has Some Serious SWAG!

We did a lot more than just upgrade our course...

We put a lot of work into making this your favorite marathon.

Get the Good Stuff. If you're going to put in the effort required to run our marathon, you should have something nice to show for it. That's why every Swamp Rabbit Marathon participant receives:

  • a high quality technical shirt to race in
  • a way cool "lifestyle" shirt to relax in
  • a souvenir pint glass to medicate with
  • a beautiful finisher medal to sleep with
  • an imprinted SRM tote bag to hold everything

Be a Rock Star. The Greenville Track Club moved the Swamp Rabbit Marathon to Sunday so it can devote all its energy into making the event the best it can be. We know how to sweat the details, whether its making sure everyone gets transportation to the start line or whether everyone gets a cold bottle (or two) of water at the finish line. We want to give you the best experience possible, short of running your race for you - that's your job.
