Forrest Gump once ran nonstop for three and a half years. That’s a little excessive. Fortunately, the Run, Forrest, Run 5K Race and Fun Run is much, much shorter. You won’t have to run across the country and back, accidentally inspiring bumper-sticker slogans and T-shirt icons on the way and growing a big, bushy beard. But you will run all around the Joe, finishing up at home plate. In its eighth year, the 5K benefits the MUSC Storm Eye Institute. Afterward, there’ll be an awards ceremony, a post-race party, food from Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, and more. Plus, you’ll have a ticket for that night’s RiverDogs game. Mr. Gump himself, taking a break from working on the shrimp boat, will be there to run beside you and cheer you on. Heck, he’ll probably win (but don’t worry, it won’t count).
