asics Greenville Track Club-ELITE - a post-collegiate, Olympic development program
ASICS Greenville Track Club-ELITE's Chris Caldwell became only the 5th runner to break 55 minutes during the last decade in the hilly Green Valley Road Race 10 miler. The former Furman University runner, who has trained over the course countless times, ran 54:43 on a very cold, but sunny morning through the undulating, beautiful countryside north of Greenville, SC. It was the 38th edition of the event, which starts and finishes at Furman University and winds through the exclusive Green Valley neighborhood and the resurgent town of Travelers Rest. The course has been a traditional training route for Furman runners for over 45 years.
