Lace up your running shoes for one of Charleston's BEST trail runs! This is the 3rd Annual Almost 9 Miler Trail Run. The run starts at Buck Hall Recreation Area (at the end of Buck Hall Landing Road, Mc Clellanville, SC).
Participants will run to Rosa Green Road (AKA 25 mile road), turn around in the parking lot at the "canoe put-in" then run back.
This event will utilize a "head-start" start. Runners will be given a head start based on their age/gender the day of the event. Prizes will be awarded to the top FIVE finishers and only the top FIVE finishers. Please listen to the announcements the day of the race so you don't miss your starting time.
If you are a parent and you have a child that is running the race, you are encouraged to start with them. You will not be eligible for a prize if you finish in the top five unless you are grouped together based on age.
The portion of the Palmetto Trail that we will be running on is The Awendaw Passage. This is the coastal terminus of the Palmetto Trail, ending at the intracoastal waterway, the "sea" part of the Mountain-to-the Sea Trail. This is also where you'll see palmetto trees along the trail. The trail follows Awendaw Creek through a maritime forest and offers sweeping vistas of the salt marsh. The trailhead at Buck Hall National Recreation Area provides parking and bathroom facilities for trail users. A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to The Palmetto Conservation Foundation for trail maintenance.
