Run with the Wild Things at Caw Caw!

[RAVENEL] – Where do wild things run? At Caw Caw Interpretive Center! The Charleston County Park & Recreation Commission (CCPRC) hosts its third annual Where the Wild Things Run on Saturday, April 26.

Nature lovers get a little slice of heaven as they make their way through the trails of the beloved Caw Caw Interpretive Center, which is known for its wildlife. Runners of the 5K will be rewarded with beautiful vistas and hopefully a sighting of a “wild thing” or two.

Caw Caw Interpretive Center is a 654-acre site in Ravenel that is rich in natural, cultural and historical resources. The beautiful site features over seven miles of trails with trailside exhibits, elevated boardwalks through wetlands, historic rice fields, a former tea farm, wildlife habitats, and more.

The race will begin at Caw Caw Interpretive Center at 8:30 a.m. on April 26. 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 19. This race 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 are also being introduced at this year’s race, offering parents participating in the race a great opportunity to keep the little ones busy during the run! Kids ages 6-12 are invited to try out a wild things-inspired yoga class, make a monster mask, and cast tracks of wild things in the park. Activities are offered between 8:30 and 10 a.m.

Online registration for Where the Wild Things Run as well as the kids’ activities is open now through April 25. Late registration and packet pickup will be available on race day from 7-8 a.m. Registration fees are $34. Residents of Charleston County receive a discounted fee of $28 when registering in advance.
