The LMC Governor’s Cup Road Race is one of the oldest continuously operated road races in the Southeast. This year, the Carolina Marathon Association designed its new courses to pass many of the notable sites and attractions in the Greater Columbia area, including Columbia’s historic Main Street, South Carolina State House, Township Auditorium, Robert Mills House/Gardens, South Carolina Governor’s Mansion, South Carolina State Museum, Gervais Street Bridge, West Columbia and Cayce, and the University of South Carolina’s Horseshoe.

In addition to the new course and new spring date, the event included a Friday night Main Street Mile. And kids could get in on the fun with the one-mile Kids Run and earn a medal just like the half-marathon and 5K finishers.

Proceeds from the race benefitted the Richland County Recreation Foundation and the Lexington County Recreation and Aging Commission. RCRF and LCRAC provide programs for children and youth in a wide range of sports.
