Elevation Per 2.66 Mile Loop – 115 Feet
The course is held on a non profit land preserve. The course consist of a 2.66 mile loop on the back 9 of an old golf course on the west side of Greenville. The start and finish line is located near the driving range. Parking is adjacent to the driving range and runners will be able to set up a personal aid station right along the course. The loop in general, is flat and 4 feet wide with plenty of room to pass other runners. There is one main hill that will act as a walking section for most of our participants that lead you right back to the aid/station and parking lot. Along the course you will see plenty of wildlife, plant life, shade, rivers, and ponds! Runners are required to use a headlamp during night hours. The race series is proud to establish a scenic 2.66 Mile Loop (ALL ON CART PATH) around the Old Millstone Golf course on the west side of Greenville. The Ethos Project has recently purchased this 200 acre plot of land and placed it under a permanent protection conservation easement. A conservation easement is set of restrictions placed on a designated piece of land that prevents development or other substantial change in perpetuity. It is voluntary and unchangeable, and is designed to preserve and protect the property’s natural state. The course will offer a fast attempt at a distance PR. There will be water on site but no power so please bring solar or a quiet running generator if you need it.
