McLeod Sports Medicine Race Series

Dillon, SC

During the early 1990’s, McLeod Sports Medicine established the McLeod Sports Medicine Heart Challenge, a Florence area community-based USATF certified 5K and 10K run/walk where participants were able to be involved in a race that would benefit personal health. The Heart Challenge was also established to raise money for the McLeod Athletic Excellence Award. The award was soon renamed the Geoffrey Kier Memorial Athletic Excellence Scholarship to honor the memory of a former McLeod Sports Medicine employee who died of meningitis in 1998. Today, this race continues the tradition of raising money for deserving student-athletes in our community. Geoffrey’s mother, Sally, continues to participate in the race each year and also donates to the scholarship fund yearly to keep her sons’ memory alive.

New for 2017, McLeod is expanding into the Beyond Boundaries McLeod Health Race Series and will include races in Cheraw, SC, Loris, SC and Dillon, SC.
