Join us March 11th for the 37th running of the Triple Crown Road Races! 

The Triple Crown 10 Miler traverses a scenic course through the historic horse district of Aiken South Carolina, starting and ending at the Odell Weeks Activity Center. Flat, fast and certified, 10 current state age group records have been set on this course. The Triple Crown 10 Mile Road Race is a great opportunity to test your race fitness, or take the next step toward marathon distances. Aiken's average low and high temperatures in March are 43F and 71F respectively, ideal conditions for a fast time and pleasant post-race celebration. Looking for a shorter distance? Complementing the flagship 10 mile event is a 5K race. And a Virtual option is offered: complete 30 cumulative miles between February 9 and March 10.

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with the Augusta Half Marathon/10K/5K and the Palmetto Peach Half Marathon/10K/5K to create the 2023 CSRA Hat Trick Challenge! Runners who compete in all three 2023 races will receive a unique challenger medal that features landmarks from all three events! Information and registration links for all three races are located at

Net proceeds from the Triple Crown Road Races will benefit the Great Oak Equine Assisted Programs, a local equine-assisted program that promotes the physical, emotional and psychological health of individuals with special needs. For more information see
