Thank you for an incredible 48th annual Governor’s Cup Road Race

A beautiful yet chilly weekend marked the 48th Governor’s Cup Road Race presented by Lexington Medical Center. On Friday, we had over 500 kids join us for the Kids Main Street Mile. A huge thank you to Dominion for supporting this race!

Following the kids event, we had our open Main Street Mile race where over 100 runners participated. First place male was Caleb Wilson from Columbia whose finish time was 5:12. Ashley Graham from Chapin, SC was our first place female with a finish time of 6:19.

Up next was our Elite division of the Main Street Mile where James Dwyer from Atlanta, GA took first place with a finish time of 4:24. Annie Rodenfels from Greenville, SC was our first female winner running the mile with a finish time of 4:54.

A much warmer Saturday morning made way to nearly 1,000 runners and walkers to enjoy the 5K and half marathon races.

A big thanks to Blue Cross Blue Shield of SC for sponsoring the 5K. Matt Shock was our first place male from Greenville, SC with a 5:03 pace and a 15:42 finish time. Ivanka Tolan was our first place female from Columbia, SC with a 6:05 pace and a 18:53 finish time.

Eduardo Garcia from Greenville, SC took first place in the half marathon. He had a finish time of 1:05:25 with a pace of 5 minutes. Gladys Cheboi from Birmingham, AL became our first place female with a 5:53 pace and a finish time of 1:17:01.

A big pat on the back to all of our volunteers who helped make this event a success. You are the back bone of this event and we appreciate all your time and support of this event. Thank you for all that you do!

Thank you to all of our runners, walkers and sponsors who made our 48th annual Governor’s Cup Road Race such a success. We hope you will join us in 2021 for another incredible event!
