Ready for Fall? 5K

The 11th annual Ready for Fall? 5K is held on the legendary cross country course at Milliken & Company's Arboretum, which has been home to to nearly a dozen national cross country championships and dozens and dozens of elite American and foregin runners.

This fall, the course will once again host the Ready for Fall? 5K, the kickoff cross country race for the fall racing season.

Individuals as well as college and high school cross country teams use this event to gauge the quality of their summer training heading into the fall cross country and road-racing season. Others enjoy the option of running the all-grass course prior to the annual Eye Opener Cross Country meet hosted each fall for high school and college cross country teams from across the Southeast.

Every runner who registers receives a 100-percent, pre-shrunk soft-spun cotton T-shirt, and a chance at numerous door prizes from our sponsors. Our friends at Greenville Running Company will provide overall and age-group awards (generous gift certificates).
