Organiser's Description

Knock on Woodstock
Pleasant Ridge - Camp Spearhead
50k - 25k - 5 Miles on May 11th @ 8am
Upstate Race Series is presenting the Knock on Woodstock ultra series that will be held at a Pleasant Ridge in Marietta South Carolina. These particular events will be held on a 5 mile loop that wraps around the entire Camp Spearhead which is home to year long camps for children with disabilities. Camp Spearhead is a summer camp in South Carolina for children and adults with special needs. It provides a safe and inclusive environment for individuals with disabilities to participate in various recreational activities, such as swimming, horseback riding, and arts and crafts. The goal of the camp is to provide individuals with disabilities the opportunity to have fun, make new friends, and develop new skills in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere. The camp staff includes trained professionals who work to ensure the safety and well-being of all campers, as well as to provide support and assistance with daily activities. Camp Spearhead is committed to promoting independence, self-esteem, and a sense of community for individuals with disabilities.
It is our goal to aid any and all runners willing to accept this challenge with a fully stock station at the start of the loop with several bathrooms, access to crew stations, music, entertainment and an encouraging hand! This race welcomes ALL! I encourage you to grab a friend and come out and view what the beautiful park and Greenville County has to offer! Proceeds will go directly to Camp Spearhead along with any donations you would be willing to supply this camp for their needs throughout the calendar year.

Athletes who are not camping are permitted to have a drop bag or personal tent near the aid station in the open field adjacent to the start/finish line loop outside of fireside hall. Even if it rains. 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.
