Description

 SWIM with the bear...BIKE with the eagle...RUN with the rabbit...

Mountains to Main Street is back for year number 2, and it will be awesome!  Swim in the ultra-pure waters of Lake Keowee in Seneca, SC, bike along the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and run a net downhill run along the GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail with a finish line overlooking the Reedy River and Reedy Falls in award-winning downtown Greenville, SC.  Sounds like a dream doesn't it?  Well, year number one saw that dream come true and you can experience it again on Sunday May 21, 2017 as the Half Iron Distance returns to Downtown Greenville.  We can't wait to show you everything the Upstate has to offer!

A Half Marathon event will also accompany the triathlon and will be a point to point affair from Travelers Rest into downtown utilizing the same run course as the triathlon.  Learn more about the Half Marathon HERE.
