Please be kind and share the trail with runners and give them great encouragement for their efforts in the race!
Parking and bag drop locations: We strongly recommend that everyone parks their cars in the City of Columbia parking garages on Cherry St and Walnut St. Parking is free on Saturday, Sunday and Monday (parking meters are not free on Saturday). As an extra convenience we will have an extra bag drop off location at both of these parking garages so you won't need to transport your gear all the way to Flat Branch Park!

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.
The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
