Charleston Running Club Meeting - March 8


The March CRC event will be held on Thursday, March 8 at 6:00pm in downtown Charleston at Tommy Condon's (160 Church Street).  This event is a "Bridge Run Prediction Party".  What's that you ask?  Well, I guess you'll have to come to find out!  We decided to have the event on a Thursday this month based on the feedback from the CRC member survey. 


People who volunteer to help out for the Bridge Run weekend will have a chance to win a door prize! 


Appetizers will be provided by the club, drinks are on you.


The March CRC officer's meeting is on March 8 at 5:30.  This will be held before the March CRC Social at Tommy Condon's.  The officer's meetings are open to all members. 


Cooper River Bridge Run

Volunteers are needed to man the CRC table at the Bridge Run Expo in two-hour shifts from noon - 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 29, and from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. on Friday, March 30.  We also need fifteen people to assist in handing out age group awards after the race, beginning around 9:20 a.m.  There will be sign-up sheets for all these volunteer opportunities at the meeting on Thursday.  If you are unable to attend the meeting but would like to help, please contact Meredith at 843-883-0101 or

Gift to Sullivan's Island

On Tuesday, February 21, the CRC presented a gift to the Town of Sullivan's Island.  This is to show appreciation for all that they have done over the years in allowing us to use Sullivan's Island for the Charlie Post Classic and Floppin' Flounder.  The gift was a framed picture taken by Zan Turvey
