MGC Long Run 2023
February 4 @ 7:30 am - 10:00 am
The MGC Long Run returns after a two-year hiatus to Columbia, South Carolina on Saturday, February 4 for its eighth year. Net proceeds will benefit the USO South Carolina, an organization whose mission is to strengthen America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation.
The MGC Long Run has a race for everyone–15k Road Race, 5k Run/Walk, Virtual 5k and a half-mile Kids’ Fun Run. The races will begin and end at Columbia Craft Brewing Company located in The Vista of downtown Columbia. Runners, walkers, volunteers and spectators are encouraged to join the family-friendly race party taking place at Columbia Craft Brewing Company following the races.
The MGC Long Run is presented by McAngus Goudelock & Courie (MGC), a metrics-driven law firm built specifically to serve the insurance industry, their insureds and self-insureds. The firm is headquartered in Columbia, South Carolina with offices across Georgia, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. MGC launched the inaugural Long Run in 2014 as a way to give back to the Midlands community where the firm was founded.
The MGC Long Run 15k route features three cities and two bridges. Runners will experience a race that goes through downtown Columbia, West Columbia and Cayce, crossing both the Gervais Street and Blossom Street bridges. The Not-so-Long-Run 5k route takes runners and walkers through the historic district of downtown Columbia. The MGC Long Run will also feature a party with complimentary food and beverages provided by PDQ, Columbia Craft Brewing Company and Starbucks, as well as a live DJ.
