Sorry but the Greenville Fan 5K is not a Corporate Shield event. We're working on it!

The results will be available at the AWARDS BOOTH adjacent to the finish line. Official results will be posted ON THIS WEBSITE as soon as they become available.

Awards will be given out at the awards ceremony, scheduled for 9:30am at the finish line stage on East McBee Avenue.
All awards are determined by GUN TIME.

If we have to cancel the event due to severe weather, emergencies, or other safety issues, we will not give refunds but will offer discounts for next year’s race. Shirts will be given out to the first 200 registrants, or put at a location where the first 200 registrants can pick them up at their convenience.

A Fun Run for the Fans
Calling All FANatics. If you're looking for a fun and exciting new run, the Greenville Fan 5K is the one. It's more than a race, it's a "tournament" to find out who's team is top dog. Choose your team when you register. Proudly wear your school colors at the race. When the gun goes off, zip by all your rivals and claim a spot on the podium. Go team!
Show your Stripes. Blue, Red, Green, Purple, White….ORANGE. Wear your favorite team’s colors. Don’t forget to accessorize. Every participant dressed head to toe in “fanwear” gets a cool souvenir. We’ll also have a costume contest to determine the Best Fan, Loudest Fan, Tackiest Fan, and Smallest Fan. Win great prizes. Go ALL IN!
