It was another great weekend for Edisto’s annual Road Race! This year’s 10th Annual Edisto Beach Road Race, featuring a 5K run and 1M fun run/walk, watched 92 participants cross the finish line for either the 5K run or 1-mile walk, ranging in ages from 8 to 81.
The Edisto Chamber was able to host another successful road race, allowing folks to enjoy the weather and have fun (or friendly competition!) The 5K began at 8:30 am, and the weather was perfect for the run. Runners lined up all together for a gun start. Another change from last year’s race is that we were able to hold an awards ceremony! Participants picked up their certificates and medals at 10:00 am at the Wyndham Rec Center, and had their photos taken to further celebrate their victories.
Medals were given out across several categories:
- 5K Run: Male & Female First Place in each age group; and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Overall
- 1 Mile Run/Walk: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Overall
Age Groups: 14 and under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+
For the male group, 1st Place Overall went to Ryan Hamdorff (age 36), 2nd Place Overall went to Eran Kilpatrick (age 44), and 3rd Place Overall went to Tyler Larson (age 17).
