The Mount Pleasant Recreation Department will host its inaugural Sweetgrass Half Marathon race on Saturday, May 22, 2021 beginning and ending at the Park West Recreation Complex in Mount Pleasant.
The race will add to MPRD’s longstanding Old Village 5K held every November as well as the annual Cooper River Bridge Run 10K, which the department is heavily involved in planning.
The 13.1-mile route will include portions of Park West, Carolina Park and Darrell Creek. The race will kick off at 8 a.m. and there is a 3-hour time limit in place. All runners will receive a race t-shirt.
There will be 13 age groups ranging from under 18 to 75 and over. Registration, capped at 500 runners, is now open and will be done exclusively online at runsignup.com. Pre-registration is $65 and all registration payments are final.
