Please contact us if your question is not on the list.

REGISTRATION

How do I register?

All registration is online at www.RunSignUp.com and www.go-greenevents.com. You may register with credit card, cash or check at Friday packet pick up. You may also register on race day but we only accept cash or check. Sorry, there is no mail-in registration.

What do I receive with my race entry?

All Registrants receive a technical shirt from Leslie Jordan. The shirts are gender specific and made with the new Heather Ultra wicking fabric and decorative stitching. Marathoners receive a souvenir stein and first-edition SRM finisher medal. Half marathoners receive a souvenir pint glass and Run Town USA finisher medal. 10K finishers receive a souvenir pint glass.

Can I get a refund, deferral or transfer my race entry?

If you are unable to participate, you may transfer your race number to another person. You may switch to a longer race for the price difference, or you may switch to a shorter race but we can't refund the difference. Also we don't give refunds, deferrals or rain checks.

Can I register on race day?

Yes, you may register on race day, but we strongly recommend registering early for the best price and to be guaranteed a shirt.

Do you offer group discounts?

Yes, for groups of 15 or more. Please contact the race director or registration coordinator for instructions.

How do I sign up as a Corporate Shield participant

Sorry but Spinx Run Fest is not a Corporate Shield event.

TIMING, RESULTS AND AWARDS

When will results be posted?

The marathon results will be available on the electronic display board in the 500 club. Check the display to see where you placed, then head over to the INSTANT AWARDS BOOTH at the Elvis stage to pick up your prize. Official results will be at www.racemine.com and posted ON THIS WEBSITE as soon as they become available.

Who do I contact with questions about the results?

Please check the official results once they are posted on this website. Often, the mistakes have been corrected by then. If a problem still exists, contact the race timing company (contact information will be shown on the results page).

When will the awards be given out?

Spinx Run Fest will have "instant awards" same as the Earth Day Run and the Santa Run. After you finish, check the electronic display boards to see results. If you're a winner, visit the instant awards booth at the Elvis Stage to collect your prize. We will present the Marathon Awards for overall, masters and grandmasters divisions on the field at around 11am, so stick around to collect your check!

Are awards based on GUN TIME or CHIP TIME?

All awards are determined by GUN TIME.

Do you offer prize money?

Yes, for the Swamp Rabbit Marathon only. The top 3 male and female OVERALL finishers receive $100, $75 and $50 respectively. The top 3 male and female MASTERS finishers receive $75, $50 and $25 respectively, and the same goes for the GRANDMASTERS division.

RACE COURSE

Where can I see maps of the courses?

A detailed course map can be found on the "Details" page. A slideshow with less detailed maps is on the Home and Event pages.

Are the courses hilly?

The Swamp Rabbit Marathon is hilly up to mile 10. After it reaches the Swamp Rabbit Trail at mile 10, the course levels off and is relatively flat for the remainder of the race.

Where are the restrooms and/or portable toilets?

There are portable toilets and/or public restrooms at regular intervals on the course. These will be marked on the Official Marathon Race Map included in your race packet.

Where are the aid stations (water stops)?

There are aid stations at regular intervals on the course. These will be shown on the Official Marathon Race Map included in your packet.

POST RACE ACTIVITIES

What's going on after the race?

There is a lot going on inside the stadium. Visit the refreshment area for fresh food courtesy of Spinx.  Peruse the EXPO for special deals from vendors and other race organizers. Get a complimentary massage. Check in at the awards booth to claim your prize (must run fast). Join your friends at the ULTRA Post-Race Party at Mac's Speed Shop. Bring your phone for lots of selfies and groupies - and send them to the Jumbotron!

When and where is the Kids Run?

Spunky's Kids Run starts on Field Street at 8:35am, or immediately after the start of the Big Punkin 5K. All finishers (except parents) will get a souvenir medal and a goodie bag.

EVENT GUIDELINES

What happens if you have to cancel the event?

If we have to cancel the event due to severe weather, emergencies, or other safety issues, we will not give refunds but will offer discounts for next year’s race. Shirts and souvenirs will be given out to registrants, or put at a location where registrants can pick them up at their convenience.

Can I participate with a baby jogger or stroller?

No. Due to the rural roads with limited shoulders on the Marathon route, running with a baby jogger or walking with a baby stroller is extremely hazardous and is not allowed.

Can I run with my dog?

Sorry, no dogs (except service animals) are allowed in the stadium or on the race courses during the event.

Where can I pick up my unclaimed shirt, souvenir or award?

PLEASE CHECK IN AT THE AWARDS BOOTH TO CLAIM YOUR PRIZE BEFORE YOU LEAVE THE EVENT! Otherwise, unclaimed shirts, souvenirs and awards will be taken to Run In at 1942 Augusta Street. They will be available for you to pick up starting on Wednesday morning after the race, and will be kept on the premises for around six weeks.  Sorry, we don't mail out leftover shirts, souvenirs or awards.

This Event has Some Serious SWAG!

We did a lot more than just upgrade our course...

We put a lot of work into making this your favorite marathon.

Get the Good Stuff. If you're going to put in the effort required to run our marathon, you should get VIP treatment and some great swag to show for it. That's why every Swamp Rabbit Marathon and Marathon Relay participant receives:

  • VIP drive-thru early packet pick up
  • free bus transportation to Furman
  • a high quality technical shirt
  • a collectible Swamp Rabbit beer stein
  • a beautiful finisher medal
  • deluxe refreshment area and free access to ULTRA garden

Be a Rock Star. The Greenville Track Club has completely revamped the 2017 Spinx Marathon and is devoting all its energy into making the event the best it can be. We know how to sweat the details, whether its making sure everyone gets transportation to the start line or whether everyone gets a cold bottle (or two) of water at the finish line. We want to give you the best experience possible, short of running your race for you - that's your job.
