The Get Out Greenville 10K will be one of the featured events taking place during the Get Out Greenville Fall Festival, celebrating all that Greenville County and Upstate South Carolina has to offer outdoor enthusiasts.  The rolling 10K course winds its way through the beautiful Conestee Park and features a mix of dirt, gravel and pavement. Greenville County Rec has been working hard to make Conestee one of the best facilities in the county, and this is a great opportunity to see all the fantastic improvements that have been made to this wonderful outdoor oasis. A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Conestee Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to developing Lake Conestee Nature Park and contiguous community lands into a nature park and wildlife sanctuary for public recreation.
