Red, a 4-year-old Labrador retriever sets the pace for his human, Sarah Lancaster of Beaufort, during the sixth annual Chilly Bean Run on Saturday at Coosaw Point on Lady’s Island.

Nearly 450 runners laced up and participated in the sixth annual Chilly Bean Run on Saturday, Feb. 2, at Coosaw Point on Lady’s Island. 

John Duberley of Bluffton was the men’s champion in the 5K with a time of 16 minutes, 32 seconds. Ridgeland’s Rachel Bowling, who recently set a Guinness World Record for a female runner pushing a double stroller in a 10K, won the women’s 5K in 20:30 — while pushing her two daughters. 

Bluffton’s Yorlliry Moreno won the men’s 10K in 37:07, while Kristen McHale of Lady’s Island was the women’s 10K winner with a time of 50:41. 

The annual event is a fundraiser for Beaufort Academy.
