9/22/2016 4:23:48 PM

Trail runners, mark your calendars and start training! On Saturday, Oct. 8 the Lowcountry Trail Half Marathon and 5K returns to scenic Mullet Hall Equestrian Center.

Runners will have a chance to embrace the breathtaking fall foliage, moss-draped oaks and native wildlife as they make their way through beautiful Johns Island trails. Races are offered for two distances: a half marathon and a 5K. Both the Half Marathon and 5K events will begin at 8:30 a.m. Spectators are welcome.

Couple the scenic backdrop with an elaborate awards program and post-race food, and everyone wins. Participants will enjoy breakfast and cold beverages provided by The Loophole restaurant on Johns Island. All are included in the price of registration.

Registration for the Half Marathon is $48 ($40 for Charleston County residents), and registration for the 5K is $34 ($28 for county residents). Move IT! pass holders receive additional discounts. Online registration is available at www.CharlestonCountyParks.com and will end at 3 p.m. on Oct. 7. T-shirts will be guaranteed for runners who register prior to Sept. 30.

Want to hone your running skills on the trails? Sign up for our 5K run clinics! Participants in the program will develop their skills by running or walking on scenic trails at either James Island County Park or Palmetto Islands County Park in Mount Pleasant. Twice weekly sessions starting Sept. 12 will focus on mental and physical endurance, form, agility and cross-training. Participants will finish up the program by running in the Lowcountry Trail 5K race Oct. 8! Race fees are included in program registration.

The race is open to ages 10 and up. Ages 10-15 must be accompanied by an adult chaperone (registration and participation not required for chaperone).
