The Charleston County Park & Recreation Commission (CCPRC) hosts its third annual Where the Wild Things Run 5K Run and Walk. Nature lovers get a little slice of heaven as they make their way through the trails of the Caw Caw Interpretive Center, which is known for its wildlife. The race will begin at Caw Caw Interpretive Center at 8:30 a.m. An award ceremony with light food and beverages will be held following the race. T-shirts are guaranteed for participants who register prior to April 17. The 5K run and walk is for ages 10 and up. Ages 10-15 must be accompanied by an adult chaperone; however, chaperones do not require registration or participation in the race. Dogs are not allowed at Caw Caw. Free kids’ activities will also take place at this year’s race: kids' yoga and crafts will take place throughout the morning. A miniature horse from LEARN Horse Rescue will also be on site for meet and greets with children. And new this year, a special one-mile kids’ fun run will take place at 9:30 a.m. These activities are appropriate for ages 12 and under. Ages 6 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Online registration for Where the Wild Things Run is open now through 3 p.m. on April 24. If spaces are still available, late registration will be held on race day from 7-8 a.m.
