Time Remaining to Race

Enjoy 13.1 miles that begins in the center of  town and takes you on to our recreational running path and through some of our lovely
neighborhoods ending back in the center of town. While running, you will enjoy live entertainment as well as lively water stations. Hopefully those will be memorable as you will be encouraged to vote for your favorite entertainment and most spirited aid station. Summerville has been recognized as the birthplace of Sweet Tea. With its uniquely small town feel and southern hospitality, Summerville has a lot to offer. This race will benefit a Fire and Police benevolent fund and Dorchester EMS.  Please join us for the 6th annual Summerville Sweet Tea Half Marathon this November 7, 2020!
