From staff reports
After two years away because of COVID-19, organizers have announced that the Beaufort Twilight Run (BTR) is back and scheduled for March 19, 2022 in Habersham.
The BTR is Riverview Charter School’s biggest fundraiser, and revenues support numerous programs integral to student success such as technology, field experiences, after-school opportunities and more.
The Lowcountry’s Running Festival BTR courses wind through charming neighborhood streets canopied with Spanish moss and among waterfront parks highlighted by hundred-year-old oak trees and the Beaufort River during sunset. The race has drawn participants from at least 14 states and several countries.
In addition to $6,000 in cash prizes, kids activities, live entertainment and plenty of Lowcountry food, the BTR offers four USATF sanctioned competitive courses (10-mile Run, 8K Run, 5K Run, 1-mile Youth Run), a 5K Fun Walk and a 1/4 mile Kid’s Fun Run. Participants can compete for the Beaufort Challenge title by running in both the 10-mile and 5K events. Participants and spectators are invited to enjoy the after-party with gourmet food trucks and live music.
Organizers made a few changes this year. Fist of all, pricing has been lowered, registration has been tweaked and prices at the beginning of registration will be the same as it is on the last day of registration.
Additionally, the 5K Run, 8K Run, and 10 Mile Run are all the same price.
And finally, this year, T-Shirts are only guaranteed through March 1. After that, they will be available on race day on a first-come, first-served basis as an incentive to register early.
