The 41st Annual TD Bank Reedy River Run is proud to announce its continued association and partnership with Fleet Feet Sports of Greenville. Once again the historic running event will partner with the local running specialty shop that is located at 635 August St, near downtown Greenville.
"We are extremely happy to continue our excellent relationship with Fleet Feet," stated TD Bank Reedy River Run race director Mike Caldwell. "Owner/operator Shelia McCullough has supported this great event for as long as we can remember and continues to bring new ideas and energy to the race operations." Once again the packet pickup will be conducted at Fleet Feet on both Thursday and Friday (April 19 & 20) from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm. Runners will be able to obtain their bib number, race shirts, etc during these time periods.
Fleet Feet will also provide one of the hydration stations on both the 10K and 5K courses. It will be located after the runners cross the new Cancer Survivors bridge as the course enter Falls Park on the Reedy and just before the long incline on Furman College Way.
Also, plans are being developed for Fleet Feet to provide "bag transport" for race participants from the starting area to the post-race festival area near the TD Stage at the Peace Center. Runners will be able to have personal items such as warmup shirts transported in a clear-plastic bag (received at packet pickup) with their name on it so they can retrieve the items following their race.
Fleet Feet will also be hosting a post race party for race participants from 11:30 - 2:30 pm on Saturday, following the race.
The TD Bank Reedy River Run 10K "sold out" its limit of 1500 runners in 2017 and has been expanded to 1600 runners for 2018. With the current trend of early entries, we expect to sell out the new limit. However, there is also a 5K which starts at 7:20 am (before the 10K). The 10K will feature a "staggered wave" start in 2018 to ease the flow of runners on N. Main St.
We are proud to announce some changes to our 10K course for the 41st edition of the TD Bank Reedy River Run. In keeping with the original intent of showcasing the Reedy River, Cleveland Park and Downtown Greenville, our 2018 course meets those expectations. The new route will still start in historic Court Square on S. Main Street and finish on the S. Main St. bridge crossing the Reedy. The major change from previous years is that coming out of Cleveland Park, the route will cross the newly completed Cancer Survivors' Bridge and climb the hill on Furman College Way in Falls Park on the Reedy. Instead of the climb up E. Broad St before the finish, runners will finish downhill on S. Main while coming north from Augusta St. The post-race festival will be conducted at the TD Stage at at the Peace Center this year.
There are two methods to register for the TD Bank Reedy River Run.
The traditional method: www.tdbankreedyriverrun.com
A new value-packed method: www.GreenvilleDowntownDouble.com
The later method allows the participant to enter both the very popular Greenville News Run Downtown 5K AND either the TD Bank Reedy River Run 10K or 5K for a combined price and excellent value.
Two of the top features of Greenville are Main Street and the Reedy River. The 1oK will start on S. Main just south of the TD Bank Building in Court Square. The starting line is near the Joel Poinsett Statue in historic Court Square next to the Westin-Poinsette Hotel. The 10K course will run north before turning on left on College and and then left on to Richardson/River Streets which take runners south to run up S. Main St. You will pass now famous Fluor Field before turning left on Markley St. and then turning left onto Field St. Runners then turn left off Field St. onto Augusta Street. Running North on Augusta St runners will turn left to rejoin River Street.. Follow River Street before turning right onto W. McBee. The course will pass the TD Bank Building (on the right) as it runs through downtown on E. McBee before joining E. Washington and then entering Cleveland Park. Runners will use the popular Swamp Rabbit Trail, crossing Reedy River on the new Cancer Survivors Bridge. Runners will then enter Falls Park on the Reedy and climb the hill on Furman College Way next to the Governor's School. A right turn onto University Street leads the runners to S. Main Street for some welcomed downhill running before crossing the Reedy River again and finishing on the S. Main Street bridge. Post-race the runners will proceed to the TD Stage at the Peace Center next to the Reedy River for the post-race festival and presentations.
