Beaufort SC Events - Beaufort Twilight Run

Runners in the Lowcountry delight in Beaufort's Twilight Run each March because they are able to connect with unspoiled nature along the course – the sight of a pink sky at sunset, the smell of a nearby marsh and the exotic sounds of local wild birds.  Another benefit for runners is the race course is fast because it is flat. 

Only the anticipation of relaxing on a rocking chair on a front porch among twinkling stars at nighttime in Beaufort could compete with the enthusiasm of race participants.  Runners who sign up for a race raise money for Beaufort County's first public charter school:  Riverview Charter School.

Children and adults of all ages are invited to participate in the event, which graces the coastline of a waterfront community called Habersham in this popular Lowcountry destination.

Kids can participate in a Kids' Fun Run that is a quarter-mile long, which is the first event, followed by a timed sanctioned United States Track and Field (USAT) competitive 8k race.  Walkers can join in the 5k non-competitive fun walk at the same time as the USAT 8k race.  All the races begin and end at Habersham Marketplace in downtown Beaufort.

Runners searching for pasta to help fuel their muscles the night before the race have several options for pasta dining – Plums Restaurant and Cinelli's Pizza and Pasta Incorporated.  Plums Restaurant, located at 904 Bay Street, features pasta dishes mixed with chicken or seafood along with main courses of seafood, steaks and salads so all dining members can enjoy.  For more casual dining race participants can consider Cinelli's Restaurant.  From spaghetti and meatballs, baked ziti or a slice of pizza and salad, the restaurant caters to both adults and children.  Cinelli's Restaurant is located in Shell Point Plaza.

In the morning, runners and spectators can grab a cup of coffee, some orange juice or a pastry in the lobby of the City Loft Hotel at City Java and News.  The coffee and pastry shop opens as early as six o'clock in the morning during the week and seven o'clock on Saturday.  The City Loft Hotel is a luxury accommodation in the heart of historic downtown Beaufort, SC.

Families, friends and race participants can sink their teeth into some local Lowcountry oysters and seafood, too.  A free Beaufort Oyster Roast is offered for all right after the race is over, providing the perfect reason to further celebrate racing victories, a good cause, and the chance for Beaufort residents and visitors to gather together on a warm spring evening under the stars.
