Hey Railroad Followers,
What’s going on?! We’ve been logging some awesome miles over here, and we hope you have too! We will admit though, that New Year’s motivation has started to wane as we trot our way into February...luckily we’ve got some killer races coming up to keep us on track with our training (haha, see what we did there). Alright, enough of the puns, let's get down to business. Races—they are a great way to get an exact time for your runs, set personal bests, and connect with the surrounding running community. Plus, who doesn’t love a shiny new medal to brag to all your co-workers with?!? We’ve compiled a list of the upcoming Greenville/Upstate races. This list is not comprehensive. It is merely the “bigger” races in the area through the end of March, and ones we hope to see you at! That being said, here’s the list:
