Running routes are established on Fort Jackson for the safety of the Soldiers doing physical readiness training in the morning. Most Soldiers on Fort Jackson are in Initial Entry Training and not accustomed to running in traffic. Protected run routes have been designated and are marked using orange cones, jersey barriers and folding safety barriers.
Running routes are closed to all vehicle traffic 6 to 7 a.m. Monday through Saturday. Driving through, around or into a protected running route will result in a traffic fine and could lead to the revocation of driving privileges on Fort Jackson. Running is prohibited on Marion Avenue in the morning hours except by Soldiers participating in group physical readiness training. All runners, military or civilian, are prohibited from wearing earphones while running.
