Earth Run

Sat December 5, 2020 Spartanburg, SC 29303 US Directions
2020 Earth Run scheduled for December 5, 2020 has been cancelled

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Milliken management has decided to close all events on the cross country course for the remainder of 2020.  Our Earth Run race committee decided to refund the race participants now rather than deferring registration until 2021.  No action is required on the part of the registrants.  A refund of the race entry fee paid will be processed through the site within a week of the August 12, 2020 cancellation notice.  The Earth Run race committee will reconvene early next year to determine our plans for a 2021 Earth Run.

Thanks for registering for the 2020 Earth Run.  We look forward to better times for running races in the future.

The Milliken Earth Run cross country 5K is held annually on the beautiful campus of the Roger Milliken Research and Customer Center (RMC) in Spartanburg, SC.  This course has been the selected site for NCAA, Jr. Olympics & Jr. College Championships and is the home of the Eye Opener High School and Collegiate Meet.

Milliken & Company encourages environmental stewardship with the event, while runners experience the mostly grass cross country course within the Milliken Arboretum. 

 This is a Greenville Track Club (GTC) Corporate Shield event.  Individual awards will be presented in the Corporate Shield age categories plus a 12 & under category.  Corporate Shield age categories are Male, Female – Open, Masters (40 and over), Grand Masters (50 and over), and Senior Masters (60 and over).

There is a race cap of 700 participants.  No race day registration.  Event fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.  No dogs allowed in race.  Please note this is a cross-country course so it will be difficult for strollers.   Strollers are allowed, but the rider(s) should not be registered as a race participant.

Race start time is 9:00 AM.
