Tiger Brotherhood is proud to host the RC and Moonpie Downhill Run as part of Samapalooza. All funds from the Downhill Run will go directly to the Samuel J. Cadden Chapel at Clemson University.
What began years ago as the Presidential Mile hosted by the Track and Trail club, grew to an event with over 400 participants from all organizations on campus. It became the RC and Moonpie Downhill Mile in honor of past Clemson University President RC Edwards and his wife, Louise "Moonpie" Edwards. RC Edwards was notably one of Clemson's most important and influential presidents and his wife was a tremendous community member. Join us for a morning of fun, fitness and tradition.
Downhill Mile runners will race straight to the ESSO Club.
"Drink an RC Cola and Eat a Moonpie" runners will run half the course then chug an entire RC Cola and eat a Moonpie before completing the last half of the race.
The RC and Moonpie Downhill Mile is part of the Samapalooza, a vast fund-raising effort to raise money to build an on-campus chapel at Clemson Univeristy. Find our more about the Samuel J. Cadden Chapel at:
