Kings Mountain Marathon - Half Marathon, 2017

Details:

A Historic Challenge for 400 Brave Adventurers

It was a little army and a little battle, but it was of mighty portent.

In
1780, atop Kings Mountain the Patriot Militia toppled the Royal
Loyalists in the Revolutionary War. When the smoke cleared on the
mountain’s steep western ridge, the Patriot Militia stood victorious.

President Teddy Roosevelt once called this small but strategic victory the “turning point of the American Revolution.”

And
to this day, the battle’s spirit lives on in the inhabitants of York
County, South Carolina. Folks here carry a certain dignity because of
their home’s unique place in history. And why shouldn't they?

It’s beautiful and rugged land they live on.

Which
is why it won’t surprise you to hear that exactly 230 years after the
famous triumph, a small band of runners came directly to Kings Mountain
for their own “battle.”

Only this time the enemy wasn't a red-coated army. It was the terrain itself. Specifically, 26.2 miles of it. On Saturday, APR 29 2017,  8:00AM
