  • May Race of the Month

    rtl_gregBusier and busier! I haven’t been able to get out the Race of the Month. I’ve had to spend some time doing website maintenance and making the website work again after going down. I think it’s fixed.

    Our Race of the Month is Race the Landing 5K Series held this summer at Charlestowne Landing State Park. After a long hiatus, racing returned last summer to the site of the first settlement in Charleston’s history. Race Director, Lisa Deaton, does a fine job of catering to runners. Most of our races in the Lowcountry are for charities and the best races are put on by runners for runners. This is apparent - races start on time, timing is accurate, results are quickly available, plenty of water at the finish, and all racers - young to old, fast to slow are made to feel more than welcome. Each race also ends with a meal - not a necessity for me but it is much appreciated by many who come directly from work. (full disclosure: I was provided a free entry for the first race in the series but I did pay several times last summer to do the RTL races.)

    My second choice for Race of the Month is also a series - Bulldog Breakaway 5K. Citadel Track coaches, Jody Huddleston and Kristopher Kut also do a great job of catering to runners. The race is run around the Citadel campus and Hampton Park.
