A monumental series of track activities began in 1925 between high schools from Greenville and Washington. A relay race was held on a 23 mile route between the Pitt County Court House and the Beaufort County Court House which required about 92 runners. Thousands of spectators lined the route for several years until increased traffic and safety problems moved the event to the Pitt County Fair Grounds. About 1938/39 the first track team at the Greenville High School was established, which later developed into competitive high school track in 1961.
