Come join us in an exciting morning of fun and fitness. Chase the crazy carrot with your speed enhancing bunny ears as you run the half marathon or 5k. A Crazy Carrot will lead you on a scenic course through Clemson and the surrounding area. If you find an Easter egg along the way, be sure to pick it up for a surprise at the finish. An Easter egg hunt will also take place on the house lawn at the Botanical Gardens for all who wish to participate.
Expect new, fun, and exciting prizes! All half marathon finishers will receive a metal medal for their efforts and participation.
Those running the half marathon will receive the full Clemson running experience. Our course starts off in the South Carolina Botanical Gardens, circles around the Universities campus, adjacent neighborhoods and dikes giving you an excellent opportunity to see our beautiful Lake Hartwell.
The 5k is a rolling course includes the South Carolina Botanical Gardens and tours through part of campus.
*The Half Marathon course features mixed terrain and is NOT wheelchair accessible.
