2017 Governor's Cup Road Race

Launched in 1973, the Lexington Medical Center Governor’s Cup Road Race is one of the oldest, continuously conducted road race events in the Southeast. Join us on May 19-20, 2017 for our 45th annual event.

South Carolina’s Running Festival kicks off with our Expo on Friday, May 19, at 11:00 am.   The excitement moves on to the Main Street Mile and Kid’s Mile (Fun Run) on Friday evening.   Runners of all abilities to include elite athletes will be running a mile on Main Street.

On Saturday, May 20, the Half Marathon takes off at 7:00 am, and the 5k Run/Walk takes off at 7:30 am.   Both races will experience a great course that includes historic areas and will encounter entertainment from 25-30 Spirit Corps locations on the course. Participants will finish near the intersection of Park and Senate Streets and will be arriving starting at 7:45 am and continuing through 10:00 am.  Our finish area will include music, food, vendors, and activities leading up to our awards ceremonies and a post-race celebration at Tin Roof.   Please check back for updated details.

We are proud to be South Carolina State Championship events in both the Main Street Mile and the Half Marathon!
