Mill Stone 50K
Due to inclement weather that caused significant trail damage, downed trees, and flooding, the Mill Stone 50K and 8K have bee rescheduled to March 7, 2020. The race times and other logistics, including the course, pending some trail maintenance, will be the same.

New Course for 2020!
We will be using a new course for the 2020 edition of the Mill Stone 50K. It is not completely set yet, but the race will still be three 10.5 mile loops. More information to come. Check the Rock Hill Striders Facebook for upcoming preview runs of the new course throughout the rest of the year. There will also be an "official" preview run in Jan, 2020.
The Mill Stone 50K consists of three 10.5-mile loops at the scenic ASC Greenway in Fort Mill, SC. This is not an urban greenway like the name of the venue may imply. There are no groomed trails or pavement. The course in this private green space in the suburban Charlotte area consists of almost all single-track, technical trail, with some gravel road and dirt trail. There will be at least two creek crossings, with the possibility of more depending on the weather. It will also most likely be muddy. It is a tough and challenging course.
The Mill Stone is a landmark located deep in the heart of the ASC Greenway. It was the original millstone from Webb's Mill, located about a half mile from where the stone now stands. For many years, the regular Rock Hill Striders Saturday run has passed the Mill Stone and all of the runners are strongly "encouraged" to touch the stone as they pass. What would happen if the stone isn't touched is unknown, but no one wants to find out.
The stone is from the mill where Fort Mill gets its name.
