|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 8:00am, repeating until November 6, 2016

The second annual South Carolina Run for the Fallen is scheduled for November 5-6, 2016, in a reflection of remembrance.

This particular run showcases teams of volunteer runners to complete segments of a 120 mile run to honor every South Carolina service member who has died since September 11, 2001. We will be culminating this event with a 5K memorial run through downtown Columbia ending at the State House for a short ceremony.

Each mile of the run is dedicated to a fallen South Carolina Hero. The run team stops at every mile marker where they present an American Flag and a biographical card in honor of a fallen service member in an effort to create a 120 mile memorial trail through South Carolina.

The relay begins in Charleston at the Liberty Square park, Aquarium entrance, at 6:00 am on November 5th. Please use the registration links below to register yourself to participate in a team to run a 6 mile segment. This relay requires all members to be able to keep a minimum of a 10 minute mile pace to stay on this grueling schedule.
