We know. Sometimes it’s tough to commit to running a 5 or 10k. However, our race is fun and comes with a couple options – 5k run or walk, 10k run, or 10k bike ride. Still not convinced? Give us a minute to persuade you…
1. COOL SHIRT
It’s all about the t-shirt. We know you’ll you’ll be styling in this year’s design. Raquel Shamah from the Art Institute of Charleston created this year’s logo.
2. COMMEMORATIVE MEDAL
This is our 15th year, and we wanted to make it special. So we will be handing out commemorative medals to the first 1,000 finishers. Cool, right? Now you can post on Facebook about your awesome run AND you can wear a medal to work the following Monday.
3. SPEED. SET YOUR PERSONAL RECORD IN THE 5K
Our 5k has the potential to be fast… really fast. It’s the only point-to-point 5k in the state, and the course is pretty straight without a lot of turns.
Just ask Jeff Baxter. He smashed his old 5k time on our course.
“If there’s a tail wind from the Northeast, this course is really fast. You’re only running from point A to B, so it’s a straight shot in one direction.”
4. BEER AT THE FINISH
Come on, this one really needs no explanation. We’ll have the normal post-run foods: bananas, bagels, etc. and BEER.
5. SUPPORT A GREAT CAUSE
It just feels good to give back to the community. When you run our race, the proceeds go to local charity, the Gavalas-Kolanko Foundation. They give college scholarships to students with physical disabilities and will be awarding 13 new scholarships this fall to students from College of Charleston, Charleston Southern and the Citadel.
We expect record breaking numbers this year, so reserve your spot now! Register today!
