The Woodlands at Furman Challenge began in 2011 in conjunction with the Greenville Track Club as a way to promote physical fitness amongst Upstate residents age 65 and older.

The Woodlands at Furman is a premier non-profit continuing care retirement community owned and operated by a local board of directors and managed professionally by Greystone. The 22-acre campus is located on the Swamp Rabbit Trail adjacent to Furman University. It offers all four level of continuing care housing with the added financial assurance of Life Care.
