Run Forrest Run 5K Returns on October 7, 2023: Registration Now Live!

Beaufort, SC - July 1, 2023 - The much-awaited annual Run Forrest Run 5K is back and better than ever, scheduled to take place on October 7, 2023. Organized by Beaufort Digital Corridor, this year's event promises to be an exhilarating celebration of fitness, community, and fun.

Registration for the Run Forrest Run 5K is now open, and participants can secure their spots at the starting line by visiting the official race website: https://runsignup.com/Race/SC/Beaufort/2019RunForrestRun5k. Early registration is encouraged, as slots are limited, and the event tends to sell out quickly.

The Run Forrest Run 5K is not just a race; it's an opportunity to give back to the community and support a fantastic cause. The proceeds will be donated to Beaufort Digital Corridor, an organization committed to fostering tech innovation, workforce development, and entrepreneurial growth in Beaufort, SC.

As the race gains more popularity each year, we invite local businesses to seize the chance to be a part of this iconic event. Sponsorship opportunities are now available, and interested parties are encouraged to download the Run Forrest Run 5K Sponsorship Packet by visiting: https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/y5oyrt9ygk0rwk1d8a6rq/2023-Run-Forrest-Run-5K-Sponsorship-Packet.pdf?rlkey=k40dr14beynr4yu0gct8om1yk&dl=0.

The sponsorship packet offers various levels of support, each providing unique benefits and exposure to a wide audience. We are particularly excited to announce that there is only one spot left for the exclusive top-tier sponsor, who will have the prestigious honor of being featured as one of two businesses on the race medal ribbons for the Run Forrest Run 5K.

Moreover, we are delighted to welcome Beaufort Memorial Hospital as the exclusive sponsor for the Beaufort Triple Crown race series. This series, consisting of three exciting races throughout the year, brings together athletes of all levels for an unforgettable experience.

Runners who are up for a challenge can take part in the Beaufort Triple Crown by signing up for all three races: Run Forrest Run 5K, Swing Bridge Run, and Turkey Trot. To encourage participation in the entire series, participants who register for all three races will receive a special discounted rate.
