We are proud to announce that the 41st TD Bank Reedy River Run has "sold out" both the 10K and 5K races. Even though we expanded the 10K from 1500 to 1600 participants this year, the popularity of the race continues to grow. To accommodate the increased number of runners in the 10K, we have added a five-wave staggered starting process this year. 10K runners bib numbers are identified by the alpha character "A" through "E". The "A" wave will line up and start immediately behind our "elite" athletes at 7:55 am, just after the singing of our national anthem. Wave "B" will start one minute later and the final three waves are also spaced one minute apart.
The weather forecast continues to be excellent for running.
Packet pickup continues today at Fleet Feet Sports on Augusta between 11:00 am and 6:00 pm. Race morning packet pickup is in front of the Peace Center at the intersection of S. Main St. and Broad St and runs from 6:00 am until 6:45 am.
The 5K is scheduled to start at 7:20 am with the Youth Mile following at 7:25 am. The first wave of the 10K starts at 7:55 am.
Fleet Feet is providing a "gear check" for warmup gear near the staring line on E. Broad Street between S. Main Street and Falls Drive. Runners desiring to check apparel should use the clear plastic bag provided at packet pickup and identify their bag by writing their bib number in the box indicated on the bag.
All three races finish on the north end of the Main Street Bridge. Following the finish each runner will receive a bottle of water provided by Greenville Ancient Freemasons. Runners will then gather at the TD Stage at the Peace Center for post race festivities and awards presentations. Refreshments will be available for participants and the Highway 301 Food Truck will be there for family and friends to purchase items.
Fleet Feet is also hosting a post-race party from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm at their store on Augusta.
