Post Race Party
At the conclusion of the event we will head over to Pace Running Shop and Sidewall pizza for the New Years Resolution Party and say goodbye to all of our 2016 Resolutions and hello to all our wishful thinking 2017 ones! After the Event we will head to our Sponsor Pace Running Shop for some post run celebration to bring in the new year before ordering some pizza at Sidewall! There is a changing room for those who do not have access for a shower. The post event party starts at 8pm and runs until 12:05amand we will have a one mile run after the ball drops to bring in the new year once again. Pace Running shop is located 1 mile from race site at 108 S Main St, Travelers Rest, SC 29690. We would love if participants could bring a dish for our after party! Champagne would be great!
Trailblazer Park and community members have donated their time and efforts in creating a new multi-use trail behind the amphitheater inside Trailblazer Park. Having access to trails is very important to give the opportunity to our recreational community for its growth! The 2mile looped course will start and finish in front of the amphitheater and head into the start of the newly constructed trail. The course is 8-10 feet wide and mainly grass/dirt with one large hill. After 1 mile of running on grass/trail you will come out on the backside of the trail before looping around an old high school football field and track to the finish. You will be able to see Paris Mountain in the background, will have access to bathrooms, a few electrical outlets, and parking right next to the trail. The course has gone through a few “demolition” changes but will be marked with arrows and flagging. The course is 85% (dirt, grass, trail) 15% (Lane 6 of an old high school track and sidewalk) The course is rolling flat (whatever that means) with one BIG hill!
This is a self timed/measured event so we ask that you bring a UNIQUE mug/cup to place a small stone in every lap. At the end of the event we will have your name through our registration file that you can place how many laps you completed. I am re-certifying the course to determine the exact measurement of each loop.
There are plenty of parking spaces available near the start/stop loop and ample space to set up a personal pop up tent, aid stop if you wish along the course.
This event is ENTIRELY FREE so do not expect glitz and glam but we do it as a part of the running community who are given ample opportunity to support one another. We ask for a small donation of any kind for the purpose of covering expenses related to this event, the Greenville County Recs. department who do such a great job giving us these opportunities, and to our charity partners like Rucking for Autism and Road Warriors Cancer Foundation.
