Update October 17: This year's race seems to have been great with a record attendance of more that 10,000.

The Post and Courier has a nice report and photo gallery, and ABC News 4 has a nice bit of video.

First reporting: There is less than a week until the annual Susan G. Komen Lowcountry Race for the Cure, one of the best reasons to get out and go for a run all year long.

This is a great opportunity to donate your time, energy and a bit of money help put science one step closer to a cure for breast cancer.

The race is set for Saturday, October 16th, at 7 a.m. on Daniel Island. Online registration for individuals will remain open until tomorrow, October 13th, at noon. Don't want to run? That's alright, you can still donate to the Susan G. Komen foundation online.

Directions and parking instructions for race day can be found here. Participants are strongly encouraged to carpool -- this event always has a big turn out.
