Downtown Walterboro Criterium Course: 2016 UPDATE

The Downtown Walterboro Criterium board members, along with race coordinators, have decided to change the race course in 2016. Where the course once turned left at the end of E. Washington street, it will now take a right turn onto N. Memorial Avenue and an immediate right onto Hampton Street.
