Altamont Half Marathon

Greenville, SC - April 3rd 2021 

The race series is proud to establish one of the most difficult and scenic road challenges in the southeast. This year we bring to you the 5th Annual Altamont Challenge. This course that is nestled in the foothills and based in Traveleres Rest, South Carolina. The heart of the Foothills was originally home to several Indian tribes, including the Catawba, the Creek, and the Cherokee. Travelers Rest gained notoriety as a stopover for weary travelers and livestock drovers. Travelers Rest boasts a colorful history dating back to America's early years.
 
You will have the opportunity to summit the top of Greenville County near Paris Mountain to look over the entire Upstate! The race starts at Hampton Park Baptist Church on State Park Road and quickly runs down to Altamont Road and ascends and descends this beautiful road before reaching the turnaround point and getting the lovely opportunity to run it again!
