Cost 65.00 per runner
Run in one of America's top resort communities. Hidden away among an intricate maze of rivers, islands and maritime forests, the course is flat, fast and chip timed.
$20 of each registration fee benefits BackPack Buddies, a program sponsored in Bluffton by Crossroads Community Support Services. The premise of BackPack Buddies is simple - many children in Bluffton who are on free or reduced breakfast and lunch plans at school are likely to go home to a house with no food. BackPack Buddies was developed to help these most food-insecure children by sending back packs full of food home with the children each weekend.

Hilton Head Wine and Food Festival
Monday, March 10, 2014 - Saturday, March 15, 2014
The Hilton Head Island Wine & Food Festival began 28 years ago as part of an island wide promotion to bring visitors and stimulate the island's food and beverage industry in the early spring shoulder season. At that time, Hilton Head Island was mostly known as a summer beach and golf destination. A group of fun-loving wine enthusiasts along with some great island culinary talents started the tradition of the annual Wine & Food Festival serving as the herald of spring. It was a coming out party of sorts, for residents and visitors alike who wanted to shake off winter. And with the help of many hands, the festival grew. From its origin as a one-day three-hour tasting, the festival has now blossomed into a full week of events: wine dinners, author receptions, movie screenings, wine knowledge sessions, a grand tasting and the public tasting. Our signature event, the original Public Tasting, is the largest outdoor tented public wine tasting on the East Coast!
