Description

Run for the Coast - 10K EcoRun on Folly Beach, SC

Join us for a 10K run along the beautiful coast of Folly Beach in an effort to protect one of the beaches that we all enjoy. Whether you’re a runner, surfer, or just enjoy soaking up the sun, we invite you to participate in the inaugural Run for the Coast 10K Eco-Run on Folly Beach. Proceeds will benefit the Charleston Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation.

*Yes, this run is ON the actual beach! You can where your shoes, or go barefoot - whatever your style is!

When: Saturday, September 22, 2012

Where: Folly Beach, SC - Race starts on the beach in front of Tides Hotel

Run for the Coast was founded on the idea that we need to enjoy all outdoor and recreational areas with a sense of responsibility and environmental stewardship. This means reducing our impact on the areas where we love to surf, climb, run, kayak, hike, or simply take in the view. It is up to us and future generations to make sure everyone can continue to enjoy these amazing places. Run for the Coast will be held right along the beautiful coast of Folly Beach, and will strive to be as Green and low-impact as possible.

*Proceeds will benefit the Charleston Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation. -Surfrider Foundation is a non-profit environmental organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s oceans, waves and beaches for all people, through conservation, activism, research and education (C.A.R.E). -The Charleston Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation concentrates on keeping our beaches and waterways free of trash to keep the Lowcountry beautiful, for your enjoyment.
