NORTH AUGUSTA, SC - Fleet Feet Augusta is excited to announce its 2nd Annual Palmetto Peach Half Marathon, 10K & 5K on Saturday, November 30th, 2019. The Palmetto Peach is one of the only races of its kind in the area as it covers two states, starting in North Augusta, SC and crossing the Savannah River into downtown Augusta, GA before ending at the state of the art SRP Park in North Augusta.

 

Now in its second year, the Palmetto Peach welcomes runners of all ages, levels, and abilities. Please visit https://runsignup.com/Race/SC/NorthAugusta/PalmettoPeachHalfMarathon to register today for this growing community event.

 

"We invite the CSRA to lace up your shoes for this new tradition as a part of the Thanksgiving holiday," stated GreenJackets Vice President Tom Denlinger. "Fleet Feet Augusta has put together a first-rate event and we are proud to host at SRP Park for what will be a morning of FUN!"

 

New this year will be two bands, 'The Mason Jars' and 'The Big Mighty' performing after the races! SRP Park concessions will be open offering delicious fare, coffee and hot chocolate.

 

"We are thrilled to partner with the GreenJackets again for what we hope will be a Thanksgiving weekend tradition for years to come. Last year we had over 1,200 participants from 29 states and this year it is growing to over 1,500 participants," stated Fleet Feet Augusta Owners Jen and Michael McCauley. "While all three races are great, our Half Marathon and 10k take participants through South Carolina and Georgia making this a very unique event.
