The sculpture The Runner by Kathleen King along the Swamp Rabbit trail was officially dedicated last week. Runners regularly run past the sculpture “like the wind” down the trail.

There is an accompanying trailside marker that remembers Greenville Track Club member Darrell Jennewine, along with a bronzed pair of his last running shoes.

“The Runner” sculpture-lovingly dubbed “Ethyl” by her creators-celebrates the love of running. Origins of the name relate to “of the air” and running “like the wind.”
It is dedicated to the memory of Darrell Jennewine of the Greenville Track Club for his many contributions to the Greenville and Upstate running community. His last pair of running shoes are here under the bench. He as an “A+” for all of us who love running!

Swamp Rabbit Cafe & Grocery

A giant bicycle on the roof symbolizes the growth of the “Swamp Rabbit Green” complex at Cedar Road and the Swamp Rabbit Trail. The cafe and grocery got a kickstart from trail users, but now the grocery also serves those who drive in for local and organic produce. The cafe is a favorite walking destination from Greenville for morning coffee or scone.

The entire facility also houses

  • Greenville Fitness and Rehab
  • Boyd Cycling
  • Greenville Cycling & Multi-Sport
  • Camillian Salon
  • SRT Bike Shop

Which is quite a change from an empty industrial facility of 7 years ago.
