Half Marathon: $48/$40 CCR; 5k: $34/$28 CCR
Feet pound against the ground as sweat drips, stinging your eyes. You use the last of your energy to wipe the sweat from your face before collapsing on the ground. Hopefully the actual runners won’t feel this much despair as the Lowcountry Trail Half Marathon and 5K takes over Johns Island on Saturday. “We wanted to provide runners with the rare opportunity to take to the equestrian trails of Mullet Hall on foot. It’s a unique vantage point for participants and allows them to experience the remote beauty of the Johns Island countryside,” says Allison Foster, the athletic director for Charleston County Parks and Recreation Commission. “Runners will travel through wooded trails filled with native plants, trees, and wildlife.” And while crossing the finish line is great, the post-race party is the real prize. They’ll have live music by Whiskey Diablo and Neapolitan-style pizza and hot drinks from Coastal Crust.
