Knock On Wood - May 17th to May 19th 2019 
Lake Conestee Nature Park – Greenville South Carolina
#UpstateUltra #SCUMRunners #KOW100 #FF50k #FamilyTreeRelay

Upstate Ultra is presenting its 6th annual ultra series that will be held at Lake Conestee Nature Park on May 17th through the 19th. This running series includes Ultra distances of 50k, 100 miles, & a Team 24 Hour Relay, along with a kids run and Greenville Water 8k fun run/walk. These particular events will be held on a 5 mile loop that wraps around the central pavilion and throughout the trails and across the Swamp Rabbit Trails. It is our goal to aid any and all runners willing to accept this challenge with a fully stock station at the start of the loop with several bathrooms, access to crew stations, food vendors, music, entertainment and an encouraging hand! This race welcomes ALL! I encourage you to grab a friend and come out and view what the beautiful park and Greenville County has to offer!

Bit of advice:

If you think you’re going too slow, slow down some more
Fuelling is key. It works differently for everyone but bottom line is, you just have to do it.
Have fun, enjoy every moment
Drink, drink, eat, repeat
It’s all about the food
