Our Racing Scene is Growing
As of this writing, I’ve been able to verify 60 road or trail competitive races scheduled so far for this year in the Charleston area. Twelve of those races are in March. Last year we had over 70 races for the entire year.
Mullet Haul - March 2 - 5 and 10 mile trail races on Johns Island. Runners are encouraged to wear mullets and a prize is awarded for best mullet.
Sweet Grass Music Festival 5K - March 16 - At Mt Pleasant’s Waterfront Park. Later start time - 9 am. Music festival follows. Sounds like a fun, family-friendly event. Make sure you click on the link for race tickets to register.
Daniel Island 5K - March 16 - A well run race. Accurate course and timing. Benefits the Bishop England track program. Very runner friendly.

- Mt. Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park
When I attend a race, I can usually tell which ones are put on by runners. In my opinion, they’re usually the best ones. The course is well marshalled, they start on time, and the results are accurate. Catch the Leprachaun is one such race.
I like mid-week races, especially ones that end with beer and music. The $25 fee includes food, drinks, beer, and St. Patrick’s Day Festivities. More importantly, this race supports the amazing work of Pattison’s Academy, which works to improve the quality of life for children with multiple disabilities by integrating education with functional rehabilitation.
Register today. The price goes up on March 1.
