riverfront race fest

–The Charleston Marathon Committee says……
The Charleston Marathon is proud to present the first annual Riverfront Race Festival on January 16th 2010, featuring half marathon, 10K and 5K road races. The event will benefit the R. Keith and Deborah C. Summey Youth Endowment for the Arts and is the first step towards the production of a full marathon in the Charleston area in 2011.

The race courses are flat and scenic, winding through the historic Charleston Naval Shipyard, now the Navy Yard at Noisette, and the revitalized downtown North Charleston and Park Circle Areas.

Festivities include a running and fitness expo, pre-race pasta dinner and a post-race celebration at Riverfront Park. We hope to establish the Guinness World Record for serving the most shrimp and grits at the finish line. Capping off the weekend activities will be a 30- and 62- mile bike ride on Sunday, January 17th, organized by Charleston Moves.

Registration is Open Take advantage of early bird pricing through August 15th. Register Now
