1 min read

The Technical College of the Lowcountry Foundation will host its 3rd Annual “Oysters by the Bay” and newly added 5K on Saturday, October 26, overlooking the beautiful Beaufort River at the TCL Beaufort Campus, 921 Ribaut Road. Runners and walkers may check-in beginning at 3 p.m.; the race will begin at 4:30 p.m.  Following the race, the oyster roast will run from 6 to 9 p.m. All proceeds will go directly to supporting students and programs at TCL.

Registration for the 5K is $30 and all pre-registered 5K participants will receive a T-shirt. The 5K route will take participants across the campus, down the Spanish Moss Trail, and through the tunnel under Ribaut Road to the finish line. Winners from each age category will be recognized and an award will be given for best costume.

Oyster roast tickets are $25 per person and include unlimited fresh local oysters, hot dogs, and chili. Beer will be available for purchase. Live entertainment will be provided by the Cluster Shucks. Fire pits, oyster tables, and corn hole games, all constructed by TCL industrial technologies students and faculty, will be auctioned during the event.

Or, participate in both events for a bargain of $45. Tickets are on sale now at www.tcl.edu/oysters or through the TCL Foundation office, building 12 of the TCL Beaufort campus.
