The Koala Bottle S.C. Trail Run Series is here and ready to take you across the beautiful state of South Carolina, into the mountains, the midlands, and the coast! We have joined forces with Neurun to bring you an Open Race Format. Rather than running one of our races on the same date with everyone else, you will have a multi-week participation window to run the course at any time and submit your GPS data.
Entry into a Koala Bottle Open Race Trail Run comes with a participation medallion, a race t-shirt, and eligibility for awards. These items will be distributed to all participants after the race has finished.
Check out the Koala Bottle S.C. Trail Run Series website to learn more about the overall race series experience!
