Hunting Island and Friends of Hunting Island announce the fourth annual 5K Run/Walk at our beautiful State Park. The race begins and ends at the Nature Center near the Fripp Island Bridge. This race is designed for all runners and is a good flat, wide course through our unique Maritime Forest, away from all traffic. The trails are packed shell and sand surfaced with level gentle curves in a shady forest. We have Play Hard Timing handling the event and this race will be an opportunity for serious runner to establish a personal best time. Walkers can push a stroller, but no pets please. Prizes are awarded to the winner in each division. Profits from this event will go to the Discover Carolina Program that brings elementary school children to the park for nature programs.

Discover Carolina provides students in the lowcountry an opportunity to study their local natural resources in a non-traditional environment while improving upon their academic skills. Local students are fortunate to transform Hunting Island into their own classroom. After their unique "classroom" experiences, students will leave with a new awareness for Marine Ecology or the wonders about life on a Barrier Island. Some students will spend their time investigating the survival of Loggerhead Turtles. Through this annual fundraising event, Friends of Hunting Island is honored to play a part in the success of Discover Carolina.

In 2012, we added of the Five Member Team Competition. Register at our 5K Race and Walk are a great way to experience our shell surfaced trails! Winding through the maritime forest and along the lagoon, you will love this event.
