awendaw passage 14k trail run
This trail race was founded for the sole purpose of charity and serving the underserved.
The principles and philosophy of this race are summed in the following 2 verses:
"Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these
my brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me"
"Let us run with perseverance the race marked out before us"
The Awendaw Passage 14K Trail Run is a 8.5 mile out-and-back race trail run on the famous Palmetto Trail. Starting in the Francis Marion National Forest at Buck Hall Recreation Area, following the Intracoastal Waterway, this trail is a flat and fast, yet challenging mix of single-
and double-track coastal trail. Plenty of roots, dirt, sand, gently undulating technical terrain, boardwalks, and sharp turns combine with breathtaking and sweeping saltmarsh vistas as well as dense, thick forest canopy. Coastal wildlife abounds. This tough, scenic trail is an absolute gem, and features the sweetest trail running and hiking the Lowcountry has to offer.
This race will feature some of the regions fastest trail runners,
as well as first timers, hikers, and overall outdoor enthusiasts
who want to have an outdoor adventure, all to benefit charity!
