A word from the race director:
This will be the 38th Running of the Sunrise Run, and we hope you’ll be there to celebrate not only the joy of running, but also the many years of Greenville Track Club’s presence in our community! Last year was the second time we started the race when the sun actually was rising, and we are planning on the same. According to authorities, the sun rises this year at 6:15 am, and we hope you’ll join us at the start line at that time!
Within the last three years, we have had 2 major changes to the race. The first is that First Baptist Church, Simpsonville, welcomed us to their beautiful facility for packet pick up as well as helping us to reconfigure the course to begin and end at their open doors. Due to construction a couple years ago, we adjusted the course, and we plan on running the same route we did the last couple years! Other than that, we run through the rolling topography of Simpsonville’s neighborhoods, which also offers “liquid love” as many willingly “shower” us with their water hoses and sprinklers!
We will be chip timing again!
There will be a commemorative giveaway.
