Gear up for the 12th Annual Beaufort Twilight Run in Habersham on March 19, 2022!
Known as “The Lowcountry’s Running Festival,” the BTR will be invading Habersham’s Spanish Moss lined streets on Saturday, March 19th, 2022!
The Beaufort Twilight Run (BTR), presented by Habersham Properties, is proud to announce this year’s race will take place on Saturday, March 19, 2022 at Beaufort’s Habersham Marketplace.
As a fundraiser for Riverview Charter School, this year’s event is expected to support a new student athletic complex, to include expanded playing fields, concession stand and seating areas. After a two-year hiatus the BTR organizers are grateful to the Beaufort community for continuing to support our students through this landmark event. Race and festivities take place Saturday, March 19th from 3:30- 9:30 p.m.
“Throughout the years we have continued to grow and improve the event and racecourse, we invite you to come check out how we have expanded the route to improve runner flow,” said BTR Race Director Lauren Kelly.
The ‘BTR’ is a USA Track and Field (USATF) sanctioned event that is chip-timed by Grounded Running and offers more race options than any other event in the Lowcountry – drawing both competitive runners and recreational participants.
The BTR offers six options for runners and walkers at all levels including a signature 13.1 Mile Beaufort Challenge (5K Run + 10 Mile), 10 Mile Run, 8K Run, 5K Run/Walk, 1 Mile Youth Run, and Kids’ Fun Run. The BTR is one of two events in South Carolina offering a 10 miler. All courses are flat and spectator-friendly, offering beautiful marsh views under shaded live-oak canopies.

The after-race party officially kicks-off at 6 pm, featuring the crowd favorite local band, “Broke Locals,” who specialize in “Southern Fried Funk.”
The BTR’s total cash purse is more than $6,000 with payouts to be awarded in the 13.1 Mile Beaufort Challenge, 10 Mile Run, 8K Run and 5K Run. Categories include the three overall male and female winners of each of those races, as well as for the top male and female Masters (40+), Active Duty Military and Hometown Hero (a Beaufort County resident). In addition to cash prizes, age group winners will receive a gift for their accomplishments.
The BTR’s mission is to host a fun, competitive and memorable annual event for Beaufort to benefit Riverview Charter School – a free public school open to Beaufort County kindergarten through eighth-grade students.
