Join us at Cypress Gardens for the third annual Bright Ideas 5K! You'll enjoy a challenging certified course of varied terrain in one of the prettiest locations in the Lowcountry. Check out photos from last year's race!

Packet pickup will be 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday, May 3, 2024 at Fleet Feet's Carnes Crossroads location. Race day packet pickup is also available until 7:45 a.m. at Cypress Gardens. 

Parking is limited at Cypress Gardens, so please carpool or arrive early. A shuttle to a remote lot at Celanese (formerly DuPont) will be provided. The road into Cypress Gardens is part of the course. For the safety of our athletes, the road will close at 7:45 a.m. and will reopen after the last athlete has cleared the road.

All proceeds from this run/walk benefit Berkeley Electric Cooperative's Bright Ideas Education Grant Program, which supports innovative and effective projects that are not covered by traditional school funding. Public and private K-12 teachers in BEC's service territory can apply for grants up to $1,500 each year. The application period for 2024 is open from Jan. 1-March 18. Grant winners will be recognized at the 5K's awards ceremony.

Berkeley Electric Cooperative is South Carolina's largest not-for-profit electric provider and serves portions of Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties.
