Inferno Run Charleston 5K, April 27, 2013

In conjunction with the Charleston Spring Fest, on Saturday April 27, 2013 at 8:00 am, once again people will be running through the streets of Charleston with the benefactor of the Inferno Run 5K being the Charleston Fire Department. CFD will use the money to purchase new equipment. The 5K committee felt strong about this cause because everyone in the City of Charleston will benefit from helping the fire department to upgrade equipment.

Last year we had 125 entries from Charleston and the surrounding area. We anticipate a much larger turn out in 2013. We have even added a virtual runner category for those that want to help the cause and get a shirt but aren’t able to participate in the actual walk/run.

Pre-registration is $25.00 for adult and $20.00 for 18 and under. To be guaranteed a shirt entry form and money needs to be turned in by April 12, 2013. April 13, 2013 the entry fee goes up to $30 for adults and $25.00 for 18 and under, and you are NOT guaranteed a shirt.

Check-in will begin at 7:00 am at the Charleston Community Center and the race will start promptly at 8:00 am.

Medals will be awarded to male and female in each of the 6 age categories for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

Race applications forms are available at City Hall or by emailing
