The 5th annual Chilly Bean Run at Coosaw Point on Lady’s Island will be held Saturday, Feb. 3 at 10:30 a.m. Come run this fun, flat beautiful course amongst live oaks and water views, then party afterward with chili, beer, live music, and fun for kids.

The event has become the biggest 5k and 10K in Beaufort and it is open to everyone. A portion of the proceeds benefits CAPA to provide much-needed items for their student center, including computers, technology, and other school supplies. Bring a school supply donation to the race for CAPA and receive a free race sticker.

For the first time in Chilly Bean history, every registered runner will receive a 2018 Chilly Bean Run medal brought to you by Allen Patterson Residential.

The deadline for online pre-registration is Wednesday, January 31

Last year’s race sold out on race day, so be sure to preregister to reserve your bib number. When ordering online, the 5K is $20 for general registration, $10 for ages 18 and under; runners and walkers present bib for entry into Chili after party. The 10k is $25 for general registration, $15 for ages 18 and under, and the XC Team Member rate for the 5K is $5 (team members only).

After the run, there will be an awesome chili after party at the Coosaw Point Clubhouse with a live band, chili and fixins’, adult beverages, and kids plates. If you participate in either the run/walk, one ticket for the after party is already included in your registration cost, so don’t lose your race bib! Registered runners over the age of 21, also get one free beer. Otherwise, chili tickets are $10/ea (ages 10 and under are free) or $40 for a family pass. This includes all the chili you can eat, a kid-friendly event, live music by The Bull Grapes, and adult beverages. A bottomless cup of craft beer costs $15, or $20 for two cups. Tickets can be purchased at the door. Kids concessions will also be available.

Instead of a cook-off, the following restaurants will be making delicious chili for our after-party. Thank you to the following local restaurants: Boundary Street Café, Q on Bay, Foolish Frog, Fat Patties, Moe’s Southwest Grill (Bottomless chips!), and Sea Eagle Market.
