The Mount Pleasant Recreation Department hosted 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 added 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 includes portions of Park West, Carolina Park and Darrell Creek. The 2021 race kicked off at 8 a.m. with a 3-hour time limit in place. All runners received a race t-shirt.
The race included 13 age groups ranging from under 18 to 75 and over. Registration, capped at 500 runners, was done exclusively online at runsignup.com. Pre-registration was $65 with all registration payments final.
