On Sunday, February 26th, the beautiful Oakland Plantation will play host to the Race & Roast 5K trail run and oyster roast benefiting the Mount Pleasant Land Conservancy.

The inaugural 5K trail run will wind through the 132-acre forest at Oakland Plantation that is permanently preserved by a conservation easement held by the MPLC. The run will begin and finish under the avenue of oaks that lines the main drive to this seldom seen historic plantation.

Registered runners will receive a race t-shirt and one complimentary beer ticket for the post event. The race will begin at 12:30 p.m and awards will be given out after the race to the top three finishers in each age category. Tickets to the oyster roast are an additional $15 for registered runners and $25 for anyone else.

The post-run oyster roast is from 1 - 4 p.m. on the picturesque lawn of the plantation house. Tickets include live music, all-you-can-eat local oysters, Lowcountry cuisine, Palmetto Brewery beer, hay rides, kids' activities and more. Children 12 years and younger are free.
