Eight decades, hundreds of races, millions of spectators. The Carolina Cup has endured The Great Depression, major world wars, and the state’s conservative laws governing gambling and drinking. The first race was run in 1930 and 19 South Carolina Governors and 15 United States Presidents later, millions of guests have made their way to Camden. The Carolina Cup consistently ranks with the Carolina-Clemson football game and the Southern 500 as one of the state’s most popular sporting events. For some, Carolina Cup Day will always be South Carolina’s largest outdoor cocktail party. For steeplechase fans, it marks the beginning of the race season. And for others, this rite of spring means extra benefits to the Camden community, with profits from the race going to benefit KershawHealth and other charitable organizations. Make plans today to attend one of the most popular outdoor social events in the state of South Carolina. Click here for additional information.
