Goodwill Mud Run    
> 04/14-15 – SCTAC, Greenville

Just five years ago mud runs were a new concept in Greenville. To steal a phrase from the advertising world, “Baby, look at me now.” The Goodwill Mud Run is held at the SCTAC facility (formerly Donaldson Center) and features some of the muddiest obstacles around.

There are a lot of bylaws for this race, but the one that makes us smile most is “race numbers” have to be visible at all times for each participant. Now that is a challenge considering how muddy this one gets. Learn more at www.GreenvilleMudRun.org.

Greer Earth Day Run 
> 04/21 – Downtown Greer

Four events are tied into this year’s Greer Earth Day Run – a 1-mile kids’ run, a 5K, a 10K and a half marathon. The half starts at the intersection of Trade and Randall downtown. The course makes a loop around the downtown area before heading south on Highway 101. After reaching the southernmost point (J. Verne Smith Pkwy at Highway 14), the route turns north back to the city. After a final loop around the downtown area, the race finishes at Greer City Park.

The 10K is essentially a double loop around downtown, but each is slightly different and covers many historic areas of the city. The 5K is the first loop and features some short, challenging hills.

More information can be found at www.greerearthdayrun.com.

The Family Dental Health Run4Fun  
> 04/21 – Greenville

Held at the Eastside YMCA, this fun little event includes a 5K and a kids’ fun run. Expect a very flat and fast course. Good for beginners looking to gain some racing experience.

15th Annual Stump Jump XC Bike Race       
> 04/22 – Croft State Park, Spartanburg

This course features rolling Piedmont terrain with short steeps, twisty sections, roots, stream crossings, and lots of fast flats. The Stump Jump is one of the region’s most popular cycling events. The race course will only use the Southside trails of Croft State Park and there is a slightly new start and finish this year at Spartanburg Sky Knights field.

Race participants will range from beginners all the way to professional level riders. Get more at www.stumpjump.org.

Safe Harbor 5K          
> 04/28 – Fluor Field, Greenville

This 5K starts and ends at Fluor Field in the West End with a course that weaves through downtown Greenville. Timed awards are unique pottery pieces created by local artisan and Fleet Feet owner, Sheila McCullough. Awards include the standards – fastest males and females – but also include some unique ones such as husband/wife, mother and daughter/son and father with daughter/son.
