Please arrive at Mt Pleasant Waterfront Park by 5:45 as the road to the parking lot will be closed at 6:00 and for the safety of the runners it will not be opened again until the race is over.
The race starts near the base of the Cooper River Bridge during rush hour so there will be traffic. Please plan accordingly!

At 6:10, the bagpiper will start playing. This is your signal to get ready to run as he will be leading the runners/walkers to the starting line shortly after the music begins.
If you are walking and/or have a stroller, please start the race at the back of the pack.

St Patrick's Day Party (6:30pm - 9:30pm)
Your race registration includes admission to the St Patrick's Day party. We will have food, drinks, beer (for anyone over 21) and live music. We will have an ID check where wristbands will be issued to anyone who is over 21. Please remember to bring your ID to the race!
One more housekeeping note: While spring in the Lowcountry of South Carolina brings back the great weather that we all live here for, it also brings an unwelcomed visitor: The Sand Gnat (or no-see-um). It can be hit or miss with these guys, but when they're bad - they're bad. So plan accordingly and bring your favorite insect repellant!!
Please note: The race will be held rain or shine and we do not issue refunds!
Thanks again for supporting us and good luck at the race!
