There will be mullets on the run this Saturday at the Mullet Haul trail race, where you can sport your stylish ’do while you sweat it out on the race course. “We decided to host the Mullet Haul Race because we wanted to offer ... a more non-traditional race for runners of all experience levels,” says Charleston County Parks Publicity Coordinator Sarah Reynolds. Prizes will be given out for the top runners, best mullet, and best costume. “We have had a lot of great outfits in the past that included vintage ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s T-shirts, cut-offs, beards and mustaches, camouflage, and old-school workout gear. We love funky mullet wigs, but of course an authentic mullet hairstyle will always have a leg up on an artificial one,” Reynolds says. You’ll want to stick around for the post-race party, too, which features food, beverages, and funky Motown beats by Unkle Funkle. Due to the off-road terrain, no dogs or strollers are allowed. The funds raised by all those mullets will go toward supporting Charleston County Parks.
