Location: Greenville, SC US 29601 Directions
Type: Run or Run/Walk

Welcome to the 10th Annual Run For Thought - a 5K and 1 Mile Walk/Roll at Cleveland Park in beautiful downtown Greenville, SC!!!

The Brain Injury Association of South Carolina (BIASC) is dedicated to creating a better future through brain injury prevention, research, education and advocacy. We are the only nonprofit organization in the state dedicated to preventing and helping those with brain injury. The Run For Thought 5K and 1 Mile Walk / Roll began as a support for brain injury survivors and a tool for awareness. It was initially about the patients and giving them the opportunity to participate in something with meaning. This event has increased from 45 participants to 400+ participants with participants who are both brain injury survivors and teams that run/walk/roll in honor or memory of someone. The Run For Thought has become a community event that includes brain injury survivors, caregivers, providers, as well as competitive runners.

We welcome you to the 10th Annual Run For Thought 5K and 1 Mile Walk / Roll...

Please note - This event is run mostly on the Swamp Rabbit Trail.  100% of the run is on pavement.
