The 8th annual Foothills 6K is the only trail run of its kind in Greenville, S.C. A festive atmosphere welcomes both advanced and novice runners.
The race benefits Lake Conestee Nature Park which consists of approximately 400 acres of beautiful natural habitat on the Reedy River just 6 miles south of downtown Greenville, South Carolina and is the "southern hub" of the Swamp Rabbit Trail.
This race is brought to you by the Conestee Foundation. And it is sponsored by Greenville Running Company and Go-Green Events.
The 8th annual Foothills 6K is a rain/sleet/snow or shine event. We have every intention of forging ahead regardless of weather and hope you are all up to the task!
We have quite a track record with the weather man and expect this year's race will stick to that trend. The 2011 race was held in 40 degree drizzle and the 2010 race was held in sleet and freezing rain, along trails, boardwalks and bridges coated with 2 inches of ice.
If Mother Nature brings it again, we think Clint Eastwood would want each of you to bundle up, strap on your running shoes and show us what you are made of!
