The MGC Long Run is presented by McAngus Goudelock & Courie (MGC), a regional insurance defense firm headquartered in Columbia. MGC launched the inaugural Long Run in 2014 as a way to give back to the Midlands community where the firm was founded. The inaugural race brought together over 500 runners and walkers, 250 volunteers and a number of local businesses, and raised over $20,000 for a local charity.
The MGC Long Run 15k and 5k races will return to Columbia, SC on Saturday, February 7, 2015. Net proceeds from the races will benefit USO South Carolina, whose mission is to lift the spirits of America's troops and their families.

Dann Mann – once a young Air Force officer on his first accompanied overseas tour with a wife and two kids in diapers – remembers his first USO experience well.
