A Fun Athletic Event for a Good Cause
The Isle of Palms Connector Run and Walk for the Child is a 5k and 10k running and walking event dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and the support of other programs for children. The race begins at the base of the Isle of Palms Connector at 30 J.C. Long Blvd., crossing into nearby Mount Pleasant and returning back to Isle of Palms over the connector. The race begins at 8:00am on that Saturday, with registration fees ranging from $25.00 to $30.00 for walking and from $30.00 to $35.00 for running. Proceeds from the Isle of Palms Connector Run go toward local Lowcountry charities. Children do not have to register to run in the race as long as they are under the age of 10 years, though if they wish to receive a time chip, race packet, race bag, and tee shirt, you will need to complete a full registration for them. Dogs are not allowed on the race course from 7:00am to 10:00am, but may attend the after-party and awards celebration if leashed and well-behaved.
