The 12K & 5K routes will start and finish in the hub of the city on Front Street in Historic Downtown Georgetown. After running past Georgetown’s eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, and historic landmarks, including the famous Clock Tower at the Rice Museum, the course quickly transitions into the East Bay Park area where runners will be greeted by lovely views of Winyah Bay. As you circle the park, off in the distance you will get your first glimpse of the two bridges that cross the Black and Waccamaw Rivers. Upon leaving East Bay Park, the course takes you through a residential area showcasing Georgetown’s signature tree-lined streets and beautiful lowcountry architecture. 5K runners will continue through the historic district and cross the finish line on Front Street at Francis Marion Park. Runners pressing on in the 12K will proceed onto US Highway 17 where their next immediate focus will be to cross Georgetown’s gateway bridges. This early morning race will surely provide amazing panoramic sunrise views of Winyah Bay, with Hobcaw Barony creating a splendid natural background.
