The best things in life start with a B — think beer, babes, beards (if you’re into that sort of thing), and the list goes on. Bringing together some of the best Bs, the Bikinis and Boardshorts 5K is a summer-fun run that will be followed by a waterslide, award ceremony, snacks, and Palmetto beer. The post-run ceremony will honor the top three male and female runners, and the best dressed. The winner could be sporting some funky, festive boardshorts, event coordinator Oliver Sendall says. “Or just what stands out the most,” he continues. “Maybe somebody wants to surprise us.” Costumes are not required, but to those who accept the challenge, we salute you. You can register as late as the day of the race. Go out, work out, and spoil yourself with free bites and beverages, delicious beer, funky beats, and a berry good time. Did we take that too far?
