One Epic Course
The One Epic Course will follow the Prisoner of War course as other competitors in the shorter distances will also be competing. In previous years of One Epic the start and finish was was inside the campground loop. This year we will have that area located at the activity center near the horse rings. Be advised we are looking to increase the loop distance to 8.5 miles on the north side of the course and 3.1 miles on the southside of the course if the bridge is complete.
Personal Tent Set Up - Drop Bags
Athletes who are not camping are permitted to have a drop bag or personal tent near the aid station. Please be mindful to place your personal belongings off the course as to not impede the runners, the flow of traffic, or other race participants. The start and finish line loop will serve as the official drop bag area designation. When you are finished with your race please "pack in and pack out" making the host facility look better than you found it.
Runners can enter the park at the following address: 450 Croft State Park Road, Spartanburg, SC 29302. Once you enter the park please follow the signs to main park office adjacent to Campground loop 1 & 2. Any additional parking can be found adjacent to the horse stables and will be marked accordingly.
There is one aid stations on course that will be located at the start/finish. The aid station will be fully stocked with tailwind, soda, water, cookies, salt, chips, and crackers. We will be preparing meals for the 30 Hour runners only. We encourage all runners to bring a dish or aid station food to help contribute to this wonderful event. This is a cup less event so runners are required to carry a hydration bottle if they will need fluids during the race. We gladly accept aid station donations of food items that you like to see at races. Our staff is very busy with course marking, timing, packet pickup, and communication with runners, that it does make it hard to prepare some amazing tasty treats in-between laps so feel free to contribute a little slice of heaven if you can! Thank you
In an effort to be good stewards to mother nature we will not have any of the following items at ANY of our events. This is in an effort to reduce the carbon footprint being placed by endurance events throughout the world. Please have a cup or hydration bottle if you will need to consume water/nutrition during the event. Please bring your own fork/spoon for any post race meals. Please bring your own bags for items collected at the race.
