Brittany's Benches 5K/Fun Run event is something we can all gather together for to honor and celebrate Brittany Langley Lawson and her dog Chloe. We are planning for a few kids activities, food trucks and live music during the event.
This event is for anyone who is able to complete a 5K (3.1 mile) trail walk/run. This area starts in Conestee Park on the paved loop and goes into the Nature Trail. Halfway through, you will turn/loop back around the trail and return to the paved loop at the park for the finish. The trail is a little narrow, so be cautious, if you will be taking your pet along or a stroller for the littles.
The trail will be maintained prior to the race, however, please be mindful this race is outside. Be careful and on the lookout for any branches or brush that may have fallen or become scattered about. There will be a couple bridges to cross over, so be mindful of any loose boards. There will be signs and volunteers to help guide you, and a couple water stations set up along the course. This race is not timed. The goal this time around is to have FUN and honor the amazing Brittany Langley Lawson for the beautiful soul that she was! Our prayer is that this will turn into an annual event that grows each year and can become a more official race.
- The 5K Race will begin at 10:00 am and incorporate the Conestee Park paved loop plus part of the Nature Trail
- The Fun Run/Wag will follow at 11:00 am and only incorporate the park's paved loop
- Music, food and celebratory activities will be available from 10am-2pm
- Access to the playground, Conestee shelter, activity lawns, and restroom facilities are available to everyone
Brittany's family has plans to create a special place in her honor where people can sit, gather together, and revel in the joy of life, as Brittany so often did. The Brittany Langley Lawson Memorial Fund has been established with the Community Foundation of Greenville to help bring this vision to life. One of the benches will be placed at Conestee Park. Donations may be made directly to the Community Foundation of Greenville's website here:

Thank you all for helping the Celebration of Life event come to fruition. Brittany would want to go big or go home! So let's celebrate big for this beautiful soul!
