Get Running This Fall in Hilton Head

Bluffton Zombie RunCalling all runners! Is there a better place to run than on Hilton Head Island in the fall? Picture gorgeous views of marshes, creeks, birds, sweeping oaks, and maybe even some dolphin!

That’s what you’ll get when you join in the Hilton Head Bridge Run, scheduled for Oct. 20 at 8 a.m. The run, which is available as a 10K Road Race or a 5K Fun Run & Health Walk, starts at Crossings Park and takes you over the famous bridge to Hilton Head Island, which crosses Broad Creek.

There will be divisions for men’s, women’s, seniors and masters, plus colorful T-shirts for all participants. 500 runners can participate, and you can register here. Registration is $30 in advance or $35 after October 15.

Afterward, celebrate with a post-race party featuring drinks, live music and door prizes.

This race, which has been running since 1992, has hosted nearly 10,000 runners and walkers and has raised some $36,000 for local charities. This year’s race will benefit several local groups, including Region 8 Special Olympics, The Children’s Relief Fund and Hilton Head High School Athletics.

You might also want to join in (or at least watch) the entertaining Bluffton Zombie Run, October 26. This 5K and 1 mile fun run is mostly focused on the “fun” part of the run! Come in costume and participate in a costume contest, trick or treating for kids, kids play area, pumpkin toss, music and food afterward.

During the race, watch out for zombies who will be trying to scare the runners! Plus, if you beat the running zombie to the finish line you get an extra special treat.

Head to the Calhoun Street Promenade in downtown Bluffton to watch or participate. Registration fees range from $15 for kids to $55 for a family of four. Prices are slightly more if you want a T-shirt. The event benefits the American Cancer Society Relay for Life and Bluffton Fins Swim Team. Complete information.
