Spirit Corps, Entertainment & Fun along all race courses
Interspersed along the residential, historic district and scenic river race routes, walkers, runners and spectators will be pleasantly surprised and entertained
by a variety of community groups. These groups, called Spirt Corps,
have been selected for their unique talents and especially for their enthusiasm.
You will hear a variety of sounds as you progress on your run. Be sure to wave as you pass by each. USC grads, singer Rachel Gibson & Jon Ives, guitarist, return home to bring their Retro-styled Americana Music
. Award winning steel and brass bands from several high schools, such as Dreher and C.A. Johnson, will fill the air with sounds that will pump energy into your run. Think you hear Scottish music & bagpipes as you peak on top of a hill? Enchanted by Caribbean music? You are in for a treat. In addition, there will be youth, theater and dance troupes in costume cheering you to the finish line, each with their own style. And of course, you’ll marvel at the Double Dutch jump rope routines.
We have a few more Spirit Spots to fill, if you want to recommend a group, we welcome referrals. Deadline is April 18, and more information and applications is available on Spirt Corps page on the Governor’s Cup web site
. Spirit Corps locations will be posted on the web site before the race.
