The previous address for the Battlefield didn't seem to be right, so I updated it.  You can also just navigate to the intersection of Hwy 11 and Hwy 110.


Check the participant list to confirm that you are registered.  No race day registration.


At the close of the Battle of Cowpens in 1781, two American officers—confident in victory—raced for the ultimate prize, a British three-pounder cannon, called the “Grasshopper”.  Join the race and celebrate the 233rd anniversary of this historic victory!
