April Race of the MonthPosted on April 3rd, 2012 No comments
It’s my turn to pick the Race of the Month again!
Wow! There are a lot of cool (well probably warm) races this month. You can check out the full list on our Race Calendar, but these are the ones that stick out to me.
Charleston Donut Run (4-14-12) – 5k plus Krispy Kreme Donuts! How can you go wrong with that? (We have a special discount code for you when you register: “CharlestonRuns”. This gets you a 10% discount!)
iFiveK (4-19-12) – Downtown Charleston and it’s an evening run. Hurry though; I hear it is almost sold out!
Rice Run (4-15-12) – Walterboro – This is an old race in a really nice town.
Palmetto 200 (4-13/14-12) – Most likely, it’s too late to get a team together for this year, but this should be on everyone’s list for next year. I love this race! There is nothing like hanging out with a bunch of sweaty runners in a van for over 24 hours! Click here for pictures from last year.
Capers ECO Run
Our Race of the Month is the Capers ECO Run 5k and 10k. Last year, I ran this race with my wife and son. We had an incredible time! There really is nothing like taking a boat ride to an island and then running a race. The race is organized by Bret Carlson and he does an amazing job getting everyone to the start and ensuring everyone has a great time. After my family ran the race last year we jumped in the ocean and went swimming until it was time to get back on the boat (full recap at MooreOnRunning).
Bret puts this race on several times per year, there is even a father’s day run. Even if you are planning on doing the Palmetto 200 you should think about adding this to your weekend (it’s on Sunday).
Check out all the races for the year on our Race Calendar.
