A nice flat, fast option for the 4th of July on the Furman University Campus in Greenville, SC. Here’s the description from the race organizers:
The American Spirit 5K Course at Red, White and Blue Shoes consists of a big loop around the central part of the Furman campus. There are just a few hills – the rest of the course is relatively flat. The race starts in front of Cherrydale Mansion. The first mile of the course circles around the Mall. The second mile takes you around the lake. The third mile consists of a short uphill, then it’s back down the mall to the blazing finish at the stadium. We think you’ll agree this is the fastest 5K road course at Furman. Come out and give it a try. We’re expecting lots of PRs!
