Save the Light Half Marathon
All the fun, none of the crowds of other races - 2012 Race
By: Kim Miller - (Walterboro, SC)
One of the best half marathons around! It doesn't have all the crowding and confusion of other races, and the course is beautiful (and flat!) A morning run on beautiful Folly Beach! What more can you say? Will definitely be running in 2013
