AnMed Health Spring Water Run this Saturday – Aug. 21

The 36th Annual Spring Water Festival  will begin a week early this year. The AnMed Health 5K Spring Water Run is being held this Saturday, Aug. 19, one week before this year’s Spring Water Festival.
Race organizer Michael Vickery said the race was moved up a week so that it would not conflict with the Midnight Flight race held in Anderson.

The 5K open race will begin at 8:30 a.m. There will also be a 1 mile fun run at 7:45 a.m. AnMed Health is sponsoring the event and will provide drinks and snacks for runners.

Spring Water Run August 19, 2017

The 2017 5K Spring Water Run will be held on Saturday, August 19, one week before this year’s Spring Water Festival organizers said this week. Race organizer Michael Vickery said the race was moved up a week so that it would not conflict with the Midnight Flight race held in Anderson. Two years ago there was no Spring Water Run and organizers of the Midnight Flight moved their date, which had been the Friday after the Spring Water Festival, up a week. Until then many runners participated in the Spring Water Run as training for the Midnight Flight the following week. Vickery organized the SWR last year, and due to the Midnight Flight being the night before, many runners who normally participate in the SWR did not.
This year Vickery said he is hoping more runners will participate in the Spring Water Run. The one mile Fun Run will also be returning he said. The run is RRCA Palmetto USA T&F certified. AnMed Health is a run sponsor.
