Nineteen students from the innovative Meeting Street Academy will be running the Charlie Post Classic 5K on Saturday, thanks to a sponsorship by the Charleston Running Club.
The race starts at 8:30 a.m. Saturday in front of the Sullivan’s Island Fire Department. The event also includes a 15K run.
The students, ages 5-10 years, are MSA’s running program, started more than a year ago with eight students who showed great potential as runners and would benefit from the extra energy outlet that running provides.
I was just notified that the Paris Marathon registration was closed. No biggie. But I was surprised at some of the stats from this year’s registrants, particularly at the low number of female participants. We run closer to 50/50 in the US. DQ
