Course Maps & Turns

A special thanks to DPR Construction. You are amazing and we appreciate your time and help!

We have been working with the City of Greenville on our 2022 race courses since February.  Construction impacts required a minor re-route, a lot of City and TreesUpstate staff time, and DPR Construction coming to the rescue and moving a fence for us.  Updated ePacket 2022 Details, Course Maps, Turns, Road Closures.
