You Can't Run From Love 8K

Thanks to all who came to run with us this year! We had a great time and we hope you did too :)

We had a great turn out last year for the first annual You Can't Run From Love 8K. We hope to see everyone back this year for another LOVE-ly race. We can't think of a better way to spend Valentines day then in the great outdoors with your sweetie. Come use this opportunity to set an 8K PR.  Our unique race will take you past lowcountry marshes and through scenic neighborhoods.  You can celebrate post-race with tasty adult beverages, S'mores, delicious food, and Valentines day fun. All the post-race fun will happen at Parson Jacks Café in a tail-gate style celebration you won't want to miss. Since it's Valentines Day we think everyone should have a "date"!! You can register as a single runner or as a couple. If you register as a single runner your time will be randomly combined with another single runner for a chance to win the fastest couple award. You don't have to run with your blind date, but you might get struck by cupids arrow! If you register as a couple you will still be eligible for individual awards, but your times will also be combined for a chance to win the fastest couple award. All OnShore Racing events are non-profit and proceeds are donated to the LLS and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Come join us to support a great cause and to enjoy a quixotic running experience!!

You will fly over the river and through the woods while also getting a glimpse of some hidden neighborhoods on this 8K route. The run starts at West Ashley Park and finishes at Parson Jack's Café. The course is mostly paved with a little bit of gravel and trail thrown in just to keep things interesting. We ask that runners utilize the sidewalks when running outside of the park. 
We will have photographers along the course working hard to capture all racers! We have been working hard to line up some awesome surprises for this race.  Celebrate your speedy time with tasty adult beverages, S'mores for the kiddos, post-race food, and Valentines day fun. You are sure to have a LOVE-ly time!! Speaking of times, the race will be chip timed by Event Timing Solutions, LLC. Run fast, your 8K time will be official, even if the course is not. Due to the addition of partial trails on the course this is NOT a certified course, however, it IS measured. The post-race party will include firepits, music and celebration. It's tailgate style, so feel free to bring your folding chairs and stick around for a while! 


 We will have an award for the top 3 fastest couples as well as individual awards. Individual awards will be given for top 3 overall M/F and top 3 M/F in each age group (9 & under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60 & over). 
Awards will be based on gun time.
