Sponsored by Carlina First the Reedy River Run in Downtown Greenville SC is scheduled for Saturday March 7th, 2009. The race is run between 8:30am and 10:30am. During the race many streets will be closed so be aware of that if you are going to downtown Greenville for any reason. The race course goes through the Main Street and Downtown area then through the Hampton-Pinckney Historic District. Some street closures will continue until 11:00am as the awards and after race festivities continue. The race organizers expect 4,000 to 5,000 participants either walking, running or watching.
The race was originally organized by an eclectic group of Greenvillians over 32 years ago who got all kinds of strange looks when they would go out running down the roads. Times have sure changed.
