Description

The United Community Bank Reedy River Run 10K is one of the oldest road races in the south and will be celebrating its 45th running on April 22, 2022.  With the start and finish on Greenville's famous Main Street, you will take a tour of downtown and beautiful Cleveland, Cancer Survivor's and Falls Parks.

The event was previously the 2017 and 2021RRCA South Carolina State 10K Championship and the 2019 RRCA Southern Region 10K Championship. 

There is also a 5K race which starts on S. Main St and uses the same finish line as the 10K. 

Amenities

Each registered participant will receive our race T-shirt and a set of Bibboards fasteners (reusable replacement for safety bins) to attach race bib. 10K runners' bibs will have participants name on bib (if registered before April 1), and receive our unique finisher's medal. Finisher medals highlight an historic or iconic landmark in Greenville. All finishers will able to receive a Jersey Mike's mini-sub at the finish line. 

Women's T-shirt Sizing

We offer Unisex and Women's Cut race T-shirts. However, the Women's Cut are tapered and traditionally run at least one size smaller. Please consider ordering a size larger than usual. Due to potential Supply Chain issues, we ordered a specific number of Women's Cut shirts. However, we anticipate depleting that inventory. If there are no quantities of a specific size available, please chose a larger Women's size or an Men's size. Thank you for understanding. 

10K Finisher Medals

We will continue to offer finisher medals to our 10K finishers. However, we DO NOT offer medals to our 5K finishers. Each year our 10K Finisher medal highlights a specific landmark in Greenville. We will announce our 2023 10K Finisher Medal design in March 2023.

Baby Strollers and Pets

While we love babies and pets, our race course's characteristics (some narrow paths and tight turns) do not allow for either baby joggers/strollers or pets on leashes. Thank you for your understanding. 

Bandits

Bandits are strictly prohibited at Greenville Track Club events. A bandit is anyone who participates in an event without registering and without an official race number. This includes running on the race route during the event times (7:20 am until 10:00 am). This is not only a safety issue, as race officials are unable to identify bandits in the case of an emergency, but also a drain on event resources. If caught, bandits will be requested to leave the race course and event area immediately. It may also impact the bandit's eligibility to participate in future Greenville Track Club events and program. Thank you for your consideration and understanding.
