The race series is proud to establish one of the most difficult and scenic road 13.1 and 10k in the Southeast! A course that is nestled in the foothills and based in TRAVELERS Rest, South Carolina. The Heart of the Foothills was originally home to several Indian tribes, including the Catawba, the Creek, and the Cherokee. Travelers Rest gained notoriety as a stopover for weary travelers and livestock drovers. Travelers Rest boasts a colorful history dating back to America’s early years. You will have the opportunity to summit the top of Greenville County near PARIS MOUNTAIN to look over the entire Upstate!
