Welcome to the 10K Eco-Run Along the Coast of Folly Beach!

Run for the Coast will be on September 28th at 8:00am and will benefit the Charleston Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation®

September 28th 8AM

In 2012, Run for the Coast was created to give some love back to Folly Beach, and bring our community together for a fun, active event. WIth 115 participants, 17 sponsors, and help from all across Charleston, our inaugural year was a huge success! We look forward to putting on another successful 10K on Folly Beach, and invite you to participate in Run for the Coast 2013!

Our Philosophy

Whether you’re a runner, surfer, or just enjoy soaking up the sun, we invite you to participate in the inaugural 10K Eco-Run along the coast of Folly Beach.

Proceeds will benefit the Charleston Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation – a global organization who strives to protect the very coasts that you love!

Our Mission

To promote healthy and environmentally friendly recreation in Charleston.

Run for the Coast was founded on the idea that we need to enjoy all outdoor and recreational areas with a sense of responsibility and environmental stewardship. This means reducing our impact on the areas where we love to surf, climb, run, kayak, hike, or simply take in the view. It is up to us and future generations to make sure everyone can continue to enjoy these amazing places. Run for the Coast will be held right along the beautiful coast of Folly Beach, and will strive to be as Green and low-impact as possible. Proceeds will benefit the Charleston Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation.

Frequenly Asked Questions

Do I have to run in the 10K, or can I walk?

No, you do not have to run, you can walk the 10K.

Is the 10K run on the actual beach?

Yes, the 10K run is really on the beach - this is what makes it such a unique run on Folly! It will be during low tide, so the beach will be wide and the sand will be hard packed.

Will parking be provided?

No. However, parking is free on Folly Beach. Please arrive to the run early, and try to carpool or bike (safety first!) to help reduce your carbon footprint.
