I ran this Half Marathon back in 2007. I don’t know if the course is the same but I recall the race as reasonably challenging. It’s anyone’s guess what the weather will be like in early January but on race day 2007 it was unseasonably warm, up around 60 degrees. Here’s more information from the race organizers:
Go ahead and set that New Year’s resolution and get ready for one of the most challenging half-marathon courses in South Carolina. The 10th annual Resolution Run Half Marathon and 5K and will be 9 a.m. Jan. 12, 2013.
Proceeds from the event will support the YMCA’s Open Doors Campaign which provides scholarships for children and families in the community so that they can participate in YMCA programs.
The Half-Marathon and 5K will start in the parking lot to the south (to the left if you are looking from the front) of the Travelers Rest High School. Both routes will be an out an back course and will contain a number of hills. The course will be controlled by TR Police for safety, but it will not be closed to traffic completely. Please run on the left side of the road so you are facing oncoming traffic. Music earphones are not advised.
