The Charleston County Parks and Recreation Commission (CCPRC) is hosting a half-marathon and 5K to support the preservation of the Morris Island Lighthouse by Save The Light. This is a grassroots non-profit organization that was formed in 2000 to save the Morris Island Lighthouse from being lost to the sea. Both races are USATF-certified and they start and finish near the Folly Beach Pier. The Half Marathon is a run only event, but the 5K is open to runners and walkers.
