Event Information

Race Descriptions, Schedules, and Frequently Asked Questions


2017 is going to be an exciting year at Spinx Run Fest! The completed renovations at Fluor Field will give us more room for the race start and post-race activities. Every runner deserves more cowbell, so the Half Marathon and 10K courses are the same as last year, guaranteeing lots of fan participation and support. The Big Punkin 5K has been reworked and will head into Cleveland Park and cross the new bridge at the Cancer Survivors Park. The big news has to do with the marathon - The Swamp Rabbit Marathon is a point to point race from Furman to Fluor Field, on the flattest and fastest marathon course ever designed for Spinx Run Fest. Don’t miss Greenville’s Fall Running Festival and the city’s biggest day of racing!
