2007 marks the 54th running of the Little Brown Jug Enduro. The first Little Brown Jug Enduro was organized by the River Falls Enduro Riders in 1952. The club remained the River Falls Enduro Association until 1970 when the club name was changed to the Greenville Enduro Riders Association.
The first Little Brown Jug Enduro was held in north Cleveland South Carolina. It was organized by David and Herman Brown. With their last names being Brown, they decided to call the enduro the Little Brown Jug. David and Herman laid out 125 miles of trail for the first race. A lot of the trail was laid out by driving around Rivers Falls in their car. About 40 riders showed up to ride the first event. Some of the first riders were Jim McCarson, Benny Boodle, Herman Brown, David Brown and Lowell Tankersley. Seven trophies were awarded to the riders. Ray Sang-Sing was the first overall winner of the LBJ. He was awarded a Brown Jug as his trophy.
