Beaufort Twilight Run invades Habersham this Saturday
More than 2,300 participants and spectators are anticipated at the 7th Annual Beaufort Twilight Run and Oyster Roast next Saturday, March 21st as the area’s largest running party invades the Spanish moss lined streets of Habersham.
In it’s 7th year, the USATF sanctioned running festival for all ages has a competitive 8K Run, sponsored by Beaufort ENT and Allergy; a 5K Run sponsored by Levitt Healthcare Affiliates; the Beaufort Challenge (8K+5K Run), a 5K Fun Walk, and a ¼ mile Kids’ Fun Run sponsored by Monkey’s Uncle toy store.
The evening is capped off with a festive Lowcountry Oyster Roast and, back by popular demand, live music from Savannah band, Tell Scarlet presented by Collins Pest Control.
Last year’s family-friendly event attracted athletes of all ages from the Lowcountry and across 22 states.
“There’s a lot of excitement around this year’s event,” said BTR Event Director, John Kraft. “You can walk or run the 5K/8K through the beautifully picturesque Habersham community – and this year, there’s a new course and prizes for the Kid’s Fun Run. Throw in oysters and a great band…c’mon, does it get any better?”
To celebrate the 7th Anniversary, the BTR’s cash prizes total $2,800. Payouts will be awarded in the 5K, 8K Runs as well as the Beaufort Challenge. Categories include the three overall male and female winners of each race, as well as cash awards for 8K and 5K male and female Masters (40+), Active Duty Military and Hometown Hero (a Beaufort County resident).
In addition to cash prizes, age group winners will take home the winning photograph of this year’s photo contest by Kelley Luikey.
