About The Paris Mountain Half Marathon
The Paris Mountain Half Marathon in Greenville, South Carolina is a beautiful and challenging race for all levels of runners. Set in the picturesque foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the course takes you through lush forests and open meadows with breathtaking views along the way.
The 13-mile route begins near Furman University at Beaverdam Lake before winding its way up to Paris Mountain State Park where it follows a scenic single track trail around several lakes and ponds. From there, it takes you back down into downtown Greenville, finishing at Falls Park on Reedy River. The terrain is hilly but relatively gentle with only a few steep inclines that are sure to challenge even experienced runners.
During October temperatures average in the mid 60s F (18 C) during the day with lows dipping into upper 40s (9 C) overnight making it an ideal time of year to take part in this event. The crowds are always enthusiastic and supportive providing great encouragement throughout your journey as well as plenty of music and entertainment along the course.
One unique feature about this particular half marathon is that each runner receives two free tickets to enjoy live music at local venues after they finish their race! This adds an extra element of fun while also giving participants an opportunity to explore some of Greenville’s best nightlife spots afterwards if desired. Overall, taking part in this event is sure to be both rewarding and memorable experience!
