The Story Behind the Run
A Race is Born!
THE CHALLENGE. The Greenville Track Club has always been at the forefront of the City racing scene. In 2016, with an unprecedented building boom in full swing, the GTC embarked on the process of bringing a new race to downtown.
THE WISH LIST. The goals for the new event were simple:
- Run it on a holiday, but not one already used by another well established race.
- Make it patriotic - something we feel strongly about more than ever.
- Do something other than a 5K, unique but compelling to the average runner.
- Create the perfect “fast” course, with few turns and a long downhill finish.
THE RESULT. The GTC is proud to introduce the Freedom Flyer 2-Miler. A “totally fresh” GTC event. One that takes place in the heart of the city at a beautiful time of the year. A fast race with the ideal downhill finish. An event that combines competition, sportsmanship and fun with a Memorial Day tribute to those who serve and protect us and are willing to pay the ultimate price for the freedom we enjoy.
