YELLOW JACKET CHALLENGE IS CANCELLED

The Yellow Jacket Challenge scheduled for Sunday, April 15, has been cancelled.  The safety of our runners and walkers is of utmost importance and must be first priority.  Organizing this event is large undertaking and, therefore, we will not be able to reschedule.  We will not issue refunds but paid participants and our school running clubs will still be able to get their shirts and race bags.  There will be a plan for distribution announced next week.  Please know that we are grateful for your continued support of the Education Foundation of Greenville and the wellness grants that are made possible through the Yellow Jacket Challenge.  We are 11 years running and look forward to April, 2019.
