Fort Mill, South Carolina is just south of Charlotte. I’m planning on running the half marathon in this group because it’s relatively convenient (two hours from my home in Asheville) and I have friends in Charlotte that will put me up Friday night. We’ll have the opportunity to share a meal, have some laughs and I have a nice place to stay the night before a run (I did the same for the Dilworth Jubilee 8k back in August of this year – but that one was also in conjunction with a Steely Dan concert).
This is the 27th annual running of the Springmaid trio of races. They’ve doing this for quite a while on Rock Hill, which seems to have quite a running contingent. It looks like the half marathon attracted about 100 or so runners last year. All three runs together attracted several hundred and they all start at the same time, so it should be a nice enthusiastic pack of runners heading out on what I hope will be a pleasant November morning.
My goal for this is 1:40. Tell us yours.
