About This Activity

What do you run for? Join us and run for a tremendous cause. Suicide is now the 2nd leading cause of death for young people 15-29. Proceeds from our run are used to fund  The Jonathan Foundation's national suicide awareness and prevention campaign called Be THAT Friend. Last year we touched communities IN 43 STATES.
This run/walk takes runners on a scenic course throughout Dargan's Pond and Clemson University's Research and Education Center. It is lefted around one of the most beautiful but tucked away places in South Carolina. Trees covered in Spanish Moss, a breathtaking pond, and wildlife around every turn. It is a trail race, but the trail is mostly packed, free of ...roots etc., and is also wide. The race is held in conjunction with Clemson's Research and Education Center's Pee Dee Outdoor Discovery Day . There will be a lot of activities and fun!
