South Carolina > Clemson Easter Bunny Run Half Marathon & 5K
Clemson, SC • Saturday, April 19, 2014 • Course Map
Anyone who's familiar with the big orange tiger paws on the streets and highways leading into South Carolina's Clemson University knows what the course will be like at Clemson's Easter Bunny Run Half Marathon & 5K Run/Walk, which is set for its 6th annual running on the Saturday of Easter weekend 2014.
Filled with a mixture of hills and flat stretches that take runners on an out-and-back loop course through the university campus and surrounding areas, the course for the race will feature hints of the holiday throughout, as an "easter bunny" leads runners on a bicycle along the route, along which runners are likely to find easter eggs that they are free to pick up and bring with them to the finish line for a "surprise," organizers say.
The course is made up of paved surfaces throughout the race, which starts and finishes on the Clemson campus just a few blocks away from Memorial Stadium, the home of the Clemson Tigers football team. From there, runners follow a route that winds its way through campus, along Tiger Boulevard just outside campus and leads back into campus, where runners will follow the route through green, tree-lined park areas and along the edges of campus before heading back to the stadium for the finish.
The starting time for the half marathon -- which is open to runners -- is at 8:00 AM, followed by the runners and walkers taking part in the 5K at 8:10 AM. Both races are followed by an easter egg hunt for children after the race.
