Bob Jenkins Memorial 3K road race added to Meet of Champions

Meet management is pleased to announce the addition of a Bob Jenkins Memorial 3K open road race to support Yellow Mountain Enterprises prior to the start of the SCRUNNERS Meet of Champions, presented by Winthrop University track and field and Mitchell Timing, on May 24 at Winthrop's Irwin Belk Track in Rock Hill.

Groucho’s Deli of Rock Hill is sponsoring the event. 

Registration for the road race here. Registration for the Meet of Champions coming soon on the meet page to the right. 

Prior to Jenkins' passing, the longtime coach hosted a Yellow Mountain 5K in Banner Elk to support Yellow Mountain. 

"To host a road race for a cause that Bob supported means a lot to me as a friend and supporter of the sports," said scrunners Managing Editor John Olson in a statement. "I hope to see a large crowd not only for the meet but also to show support for the Jenkins family and road race through participants, supporters and spectators."
