Ages 10-15 can register for the half marathon, but they must accompanied by a registered parent or guardian who is also running the half marathon. Dogs are not allowed on the course.
"We welcome the opportunity to return to one of the local trail running community's favorite venues, Johns Island County Park,” said CCPRC Fitness and Wellness Manager Allison Foster. “It's a rural beauty that offers varied terrain, moss draped oaks and wildlife. The option to choose two dramatically different distances, a Half Marathon or a 5K, makes this race appealing to all fitness levels.”
Johns Island County Park, the site of Mullet Hall Equestrian Center, is located at 2662 Mullet Hall Road, just off River Road. The park is owned and operated by the Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission.
