"We are thrilled to see three great organizations coming together to form the Triple Crown Race Series and we are excited to provide timing this year," Tim Waz, owner of Grounded Running in Beaufort.

"While every event we support is special in itself, having three amazing events in one month offers participants a unique new challenge to do all three.

Beaufort continues to rank as one of the healthiest cities in America and we love supporting a lifestyle focused on physical fitness as a component of overall health and well-being. Grounded Running is proud to partner with Beaufort Digital Corridor, Holy Trinity Classical Christian School, and Beaufort Executive Airport to put on this series, as well as to support each and every participant by providing a top quality race experience and support for each individual to reach and exceed his or her fitness goals," he added.

All courses are USATF certified, timing is provided by Grounded Running and a unique finishers medal is sponsored by Stokes Toyota Hilton Head.
