This is a Greenville Track Club Corporate Shield event

For 2023 race we will keep the capacity to 400 participants. This allows us to do parking on-site and meet other capacity constraints. Unfortunately due to supply chain issues (part and service shortages) we will not have Hot Laps this year.

This year for the first time we are offering a BMW Performance Classic Running Phone Pouch for optional purchase. Vintage shirts available for purchase ($10 cash) during packet pickup while supplies last. 

We have a minimum age requirement of 5 years old, in line with RRCA guidelines that children under this age group should only participate in "dash" events. All registered participants should be able to finish the race on their own (not in a stroller, or carried by an adult).

Important Dates:

August 25th - Early registration deadline (Price increase from $15 to $20)

August 31st - Deadline for ordering an optional running phone pouch

September 14th - Pre-Race Packet Pickup 5:00-7:00 PM at Fleet Feet, 635 Augusta St, Greenville. Please do not park at the church across the street! You can park on Haynie Street, and at the architectural firm / brewery (Eighth State Brewing) across the street

September 15th - Race Day. Packet Pickup 5:00-6:10 PM. Race is at 6:30. 


With capacity capped at 400 participants we will allow all participants to park at the Performance Center, but it is STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO CARPOOL AND ARRIVE EARLY. if we run out of spaces we will send late-comers to the overflow lot across Highway 101 and send a shuttle to pick them up. Please do not park across Highway 101 unless you are directed to go there as there will be no shuttle otherwise.

All carpool participants will receive a special door prize drawing ticket.
