Fort Mill 2018

Run through the candle-lit woods of Anne Springs Close Greenway with your headlamp or flashlight.  The trail will be marked with hundreds of blinking candles and each mile will be marked by bluegrass music instead of a sign.  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 looking for something a little different!
