Update October 4: Just spotted a report at The Beaufort Tribune with more commentary about the large turnout for the race; read that here.

Update October 3: The Island Packet has a copy of the run times; check 'em out here.

First reporting:

Thinking of running in the annual Beaufort Shrimp Festival 5K run/walk on Saturday, October 2? 

Well you should get on top of it and register by Wednesday, September 15, to not only guarantee you'll get a t-shirt but to help out with the expenses of flying in and putting up some 100 severly injured vets being flown in for the accompanying Lt. Dan Weekend.

Same bit of advice goes if you're planning to partake in the bike ride.

Register here for the 5K run/walk/kids popcorn run ($20, $10 military, $10 kids run)

Register here for the bike ride ($25, $10 military, $15 student, $20 senior.)

Registration the day of each event is allowed.

Word is this 5K should be pretty fun as registration has been at a quicker pace than year's past.

Oh, and you can expect more details on the Shrimp Festival and concert as we closer to their October 1-2 dates, but for now here's a link to the website.
