Race of the Month OctoberPosted on October 1st, 2012 No comments
After a slow (and hot) summer the race season is starting to pick up. There are eleven races listed on our calendar for October!
There’s a wide range of races too. You can run on a trail, bridge or even a runway. Check out the race calendar and find the one that’s best for you.
My pick for the Race of the Month is a long established race in this area.
Race of the Month: IOP Connector Run
Next week, the Isle of Palms will host the 20th IOP Connector Run Walk for the Child 5k and 10k. This is an awesome run with incredible support and even better views. Running over the connector is an experience no one should miss.
The weather is usually great for this race and with this being the 20th anniversary, there’s going to be a beer garden and a live band (PlaneJane) at the post race party. Sweet!
Plus, proceeds from the race benefit local prevention of child abuse and other child related programs.
The other race that I really like this month is the 4th Annual Joint Base Charleston Run the Runway 5k. I ran this for the first time last year and had a blast! The price is right too (only $15). You do need to register early and you will have to take a bus from the parking lot to the start, but who doesn’t want to run on a runway?
Anyway, get out and run!
