Event benefits JI teams
Running or walking is the theme this weekend as yet another lace-'em-up activity takes place in the Lowcountry. Beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday is the 2009 Folly Beach 10-mile run/5-mile walk. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the James Island High School cross country and track teams.
The start and finish lines are in front of the Holiday Inn, 1 Center St. The course is a 5-mile loop, with walkers going around once and runners going around twice.
If you haven't already signed up, don't worry. Race-day sign-up begins at 6:15 a.m. and goes until 7:45 a.m. The cost is $45 for the 10-mile run and $30 for the 5-mile walk.
All participants will receive a custom-designed long-sleeve T-shirt and awards will be given to the top three overall male and female finishers in each age group.
