2Slow 4Boston Marathon to be held in Greer
on September 20th, 2020.
Greer, SC: The seventh installment of the 2Slow4Boston Marathon will be held near historic downtown Greer for the second year in a row. 50 runners/walkers from 17 states and Canada will be participating.
This marathon was created with the idea of hosting an event that would be exclusive and appeal to slower runners. It’s a way to honor middle and back of the pack runners that don’t receive as much recognition as faster runners. The race will consist of a 1.31-mile loop that participants will complete 20 times. The last three finishers receive the 1st,2nd, and 3rd prize. Although this event normally takes place in the spring around the Boston Marathon date, this year it was moved to September due to Covid-19 limitations.
Race director Adamy Diaz says the race will remain open until the last participant crosses the finish line. The marathon is open to anyone regardless of speed, but if a participant has never completed a marathon or has qualified or completed the Boston Marathon, they will run as a “Bandit” and precludes the participant from earning award money.
The marathon will begin at 701 West Poinsett St, in Greer next to the Clock restaurant, Team Be @ Peace headquarters, and home to Zenergy Hemp Shoppe and Angel Dolfyn Massage.
Adamy, organizer and race director, has completed 25 marathons and ultras, and her husband Don has completed 69. They are both back of the pack runners and are passionate about their desire to honor slower runners.
Sponsors to this year’s 2Slow4Boston Marathon are Zenergy Hemp Shoppe, Angel Dolfyn Massage, Run In, the Clock Restaurant of Greer, daWebGenius and 3CatsWeb.
