Description

The James Island Connector Run (JICR) provides one of the most scenic race routes in the Southeast and one of the most challenging courses in the Lowcountry!

Overlooking the beautiful Ashley River and the historic downtown peninsula of Charleston, this 8K Run, 5K Run, and 5K Walk goes across the James Island Connector from the James Island side of the river, staying on the connector with no exit ramps. The post-race festival includes a finishers medal and food at the finish line.

The race starts at 8:00 am for all distances, runners and walkers.

Awards

We will have the top finisher awards as well as 3 deep in all age groups and a NEW Walkers award: top 3 Male and Female walkers.

If you have already registered for the 5K run/walk and would like to change to a Walker, you can EDIT your registration under the "Event Info" menu item above. If you have trouble and are not able to change your registration to walker, contact us at Info@JICRun.com

Swag

This year, all runners and walkers receive finisher's medals as well as running socks. We'll have photos of these closer to race day.

Our shirt option is a long-sleeved, lightweight hoodie. If you register close to race day, your preferred shirt size may not be available. Register as soon as possible to ensure you receive a shirt and the preferred size. Week of or day of registrants may not receive a shirt.

Race Management

The Charleston Running Club has hosted the James Island Connector Run since 2019.

Since 1977, the Charleston Running Club has promoted running in the local community. Early on, the club was instrumental in starting two of the area's largest races, the Cooper River Bridge Run and the Kiawah Marathon. Members of the club's leadership currently serve on the board of the Cooper River Bridge Run.

The Charleston Running Club hosts two additional fundraising races: the Charlie Post Classic 15K/5K in January and the Floppin’ Flounder 5K in June.
