ALL RUNNERS REPORT TO THE PAC TENT IN FOOTBALL STADIUM for TEAM MEETING/BIB DISTRIBUTION AT 430PM!
Here is the event schedule:
ALL Boys Start 5:30PM (warmup at 5PM).
ALL Girls Start 6:00PM (warmup at 5:30PM, right after Boys start).
The Pelion Meet will be scored using computer chip timing, thanks to Strictly Running, Inc. Runners need to stay away from the finish line area in the center of the football field or else you will set off your chip and be disqualified. You must return your bib to race officials in the finish chute!
The course will be just like last year with the starting line on the soccer field behind the school then the finish line inside the football stadium. Awards will be given to the top 10 individuals.
Directions: Pelion High School 600 Lydia Drive Pelion, SC 29123
From downtown Columbia area, you can go towards the Columbia Metropolitan Airport then pick up Edmund Highway (Hwy 302) all the way into Pelion. Don’t use Lydia Drive because it takes you to the principal’s office and we don’t want to go the principal’s office! We meet behind the school on the football field so, instead, turn right onto US178 – Main Street (before you get to Lydia Drive) and go about a half mile then turn left into the school’s bus parking lot near the football stadium.
Coming from the Irmo area, most folks take I-20 West (towards Augusta) and then exit 55A (onto SC-6, following signs to Pelion) which turns in to Edmund-Highway 302, per above.
