The Village at Sandhill: 481 Towncenter Pl., Columbia, United States
The 9th annual Palmetto Half Marathon will be held at the Village at Sandhill. It’s not just a race but an event to strengthen and support our community. Last year we had over 1500 participants and this year we hope make the event even bigger and better for our runners and walkers. In addition to outstanding participation over the past six years, the event has donated more than $160,000 to local charities and ministries
The out and back course takes runners through parts of Northeast Columbia including The Woodland’s and Wildewood neighborhoods. Water stations are positioned approximately every 2 miles along the course. There will be bathroom facilities along the course as well as a First Aid tent that will be located near mile 4 and mile 9.

What better way to get your child active than to have them run a half marathon! Here's how our Youth Half Marathon will work:
The course takes runners through the Village at Sandhill, out onto Clemson Rd., down the ramp to Two Notch Rd. and right back up the on-ramp to Clemson Rd, then turn left at the first entrance into the Village and finish at the fountain. Water stations are positioned approximately every mile along the course. There is a First Aide tent at the finish line as well as restrooms. Click HERE to view the 5K Run/Walk course map.
Kids' Fun Run
The Kids' Fun Run is for kids under the age of 10 and will start behind the fountain at the center of Village at Sandhill and will run around the small loop. This is an easy, flat course that will have lots of people cheering on the kids as they run! After the race they can enjoy plenty of kid friendly activities such as a bounce house, face painting, balloon art and much more! Click HERE to view Kids' Fun Run course map.
Timing is done by the Chip Timing System.
