February Race of the MonthPosted on February 8th, 2013 No comments
February is short enough without me slacking off and not picking the Race of the Month until now!
There are several races this month and my top pick is the 8th Annual LifePoint Gift of Life 5K/2K Run Walk on James Island.
I ran this race with my family last year and we loved it. The course is on paved trails and it starts and ends on a grass field. The shirt is very cool and the prizes are sweet!
The race does a great job of celebrating organ recipients and donors and even has a race category just for them. The organization helps raise funds and awareness about organ, eye and tissue donation as well as about the South Carolina Donor Registry (www.donatelifesc.org).
Not a bad way to spend a Saturday morning. You get to feel good about not only running a race, but helping with an awesome cause.
The other race that I have to mention is the Almost 9 Miler. The race is next weekend so if you are planning on running you need to register soon! Eagle Endurance puts this race on so you know you will be running on a fun trail with lots of crazy people.
March is going to packed with races so Coach Greg is going to have a tough time picking his favorite.
