Fort Mill 2017

We are in our third year of this unique event!  Run through the candle-lit woods of Explore Park with your headlamp or flashlight.  Each mile will be marked by bluegrass music.  Once you make it to the finish line there will be live music and moonshine cocktails for all!  This 5K is great for the casual runner/walker and the serious trail racers!

We are extremely excited to have Copper Barrel Distillery as a sponsor and partner for this race in its third year!  They will not only be helping with the cocktail recipes, but they will also be on hand so you can meet a local Carolina Distillery!
