URRC (United Resource Recovery Corporation), Spartanburg Coca-Cola and the City of Spartanburg hosted the inaugural iRecycle Run-Spartanburg Half Marathon on October 10, 2009.

This event benefits scholarships given through the iRecycle program to Spartanburg Community College and supports community recycling efforts. This is the only half marathon in Spartanburg and it was a huge success and attracted runners from throughout the region. There were over 500 participants in the events! (including the 5K run.)
