Where the Wild Things Run 5K

Grab your running shoes and get ready to run wild around Caw Caw! The Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission (CCPRC) hosts its annual Where the Wild Things Run 5K run and walk on Saturday, March 2 at Caw Caw Interpretive Center.

Caw Caw Interpretive Center features an abundance of wildlife of many types. Runners and walkers will experience breathtaking views as they run through Caw Caw’s scenic trails. Participants may also encounter “a wild thing or two” while running through the interpretive center.

Caw Caw Interpretive Center is a 654-acre site in Ravenel that is rich in natural, cultural and historical resources. The scenic park features more than seven miles of trails with trailside exhibits, elevated boardwalks through wetlands, historic rice fields, remnants of a former tea farm, and wildlife habitats.
