June Race of the MonthPosted on May 31st, 2012 No comments
It’s almost June and I have not picked the race of the month! Man, this month has flown by…
One thing is for sure, there are plenty of races in June!
This weekend you can choose from two races, but the new 5k trail race Bikinis and Boardshorts at Laurel Hill Plantation in Mount Pleasant looks really cool (plus the shirt design just rocks!).
Two race series continue this month; the Citadel Breakaway and the Race the Landing. Both are evening 5k’s and go through two really awesome places in Charleston (you can’t go wrong with either of these races).
Want to run two races on a Saturday for two great causes? On June 9th you can run the Phoenix Athlete’s Sweat’n for a Reason at 8am in Summerville and then run the ALS H.O.P.E. Beach Run at 6:00pm on the Isle of Palms!
This month is so full of races that I not only picked a race of the month, I picked a weekend of races; Father’s Day weekend (June 16th and 17th)!
Races of the Month
The Floppin’ Flounder 5k is an absolute must for all Charleston area runners! It’s put on by the Charleston Running Club so it is done right! The shirt is always cool and there is always a great crowd. This year, Triangle Char & Bar will be serving breakfast burritos after the race! If that is not enough, this is one of the least expensive races in town ($15 for Charleston Running Club members).
Complete your Father’s Day weekend with a run on the beach at the ECORun 5k and 10k. This was my race of the month in April and is such a unique experience I have to share it again. Running on Caper’s Island is amazing and taking a ferry to the start is an absolute blast!
So that’s it for June! I hope you get a chance to run as many races as possible this month. Don’t forget to stay hydrated (with water) and checkout our race calendar for more details (and results) on these and other races this year.
