Pro Tips

  • Welcome to South Carolina, and what many will argue, is the most beautiful section of the course.  Enjoy the scenic views to your left of the North Saluda Reservoir that provides many Greenville County residents with fresh, clean drinking water. 

  • Team vehicles are not allowed to stop on the side of the road in the Greenville Watershed Area, please proceed directly to the transition area at Hotel Domestique.

  • This leg pretty much falls down a mountain for the first 6 miles. With a significant elevation drop, runners should prepare their quads and knees before hitting the road.

  • After your downhill opening stretch, runners will see rolling hills before a tough final uphill mile.
