With its trails, both paved and natural, miles of beach, and ample scenery, Edisto Island is like paradise for walkers and runners.
Whats strange is that until now, theres never been an official run anywhere within the town of Edisto Beach. But all that is going to change on Saturday.
This weekend marks the First Annual Edisto Beach Road Race.
It kicks off at 8:30 a.m. Saturday on King Cotton Road located inside of the Wyndham Resort. From there, runners or walkers will head out on the 5k or 1 mile route which covers paths throughout the resort and on Edistos side streets.
The route ends at the recreation center in Wyndham.
Registration for the race is $20 if done so in advance. Registration the day of the race is $25 and comes with a t-shirt while supplies last. Without a t-shirt the fee is $15.
Awards will be given to the best male and female in each age group in the 5k run. Awards will also be given to those who come in first, second, or third place overall.
