Palmetto Bluff Half Marathon

2014 Bliss Award™ Winner - Best South Carolina Community of the Year

Founded by local runners, and continued by the Lowcountry community, The Palmetto Running Company spearheads numerous local events in coastal South Carolina. The most recent event stirring up attention is the Palmetto Bluff Half Marathon, a fundraising event for BackPack Buddies. BackPack Buddies helps provide food for children that may otherwise not have enough by sending backpack homes with children each weekend full of food.

On Sunday, March 9th at 9:00AM runners will take off from Laurel Oak Boy Road for a 13 mile marathon through gorgeous countryside, along rushing rivers, and over a few steep incline bridges. Passing by The Point on Old Palmetto Bluff Road, runners swing by stunning scenery speckled with adorable Palmetto Bluff cottages. The warm weather works up a sweat as athletes trek though one of the best places to live in coastal South Carolina, but Palmetto Bluff is prepared for anything with its six drink stations, and first aid stations situated at either end of the five mile loop.

Competitors are of all ages, and many winners of the previous years are 50+. Running is a growing trend for the Baby Boomer generation, and many are looking forward to this year’s big run followed by marathon celebrations. Palmetto Bluff festivals and events celebrate the close-knits communities with a whole day of festivities. Each participant receives a Finisher medal, with first place medals awarded to each male and female contestant of highest performance. Register at before Thursday, March, 6th to secure your spot in the Palmetto Bluff Half Marathon.

Known as one of the best places to live in coastal South Carolina, Palmetto Bluff festivals and events are only two reasons this master-planned community is Real Estate Scorecard's pick for Baby Boomers looking to retire in South Carolina.
