Prepare for a scenic Johns Island trail run at the annual Lowcountry Trail Half Marathon and 5K. Charleston County Parks is thrilled to invite runners back to Johns Island County Park for the race on Saturday, Oct. 9.
Runners will take in spectacular foliage and moss-draped oaks as they make their way through Johns Island’s breathtaking trails. Races are offered for two distances: a half marathon and 5K. The half marathon begins at 8 a.m. The 5K will begin at 8:30 a.m.
Pre-registration ends on Monday, October 4. On-site registration will not be available. Participants ages 10-15 can register for the 5K but must be accompanied by an adult chaperone who is also running the 5K. Dogs are not allowed on the course. The half marathon is a run only event.
"We welcome the opportunity to return to one of the local trail running community's favorite venues, Johns Island County Park,” said Charleston County Parks Fitness and Wellness Manager Allison Foster. “It's a rural beauty that offers varied terrain and moss draped oaks. 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 is located at 2662 Mullet Hall Road, just off River Road. The park sits on 738 acres and offers miles of trails for runners, walkers and equestrians. During normal park hours, an archery range, dog park and disc golf course are also available.
