PALMETTO DUNES CARES - Palmetto Dunes Cares is a charitable organization whose motto is: giving back while building community. Our mission is to support local youth and enhance the natural environment in the greater Hilton Head Island area through grants and scholarships.
Every paid registered participant receives a custom race T-shirt (a really cool one too!) and a custom race bib.
We encourage everyone to ride your bike or walk to the race site - due to the limited vehicle parking at the Dunes House. There are lots of bike racks available - and, its a great warm up for the run.
Bike parking, handicap parking, and runner drop-off only at the Dunes House lot.
** Vehicle parking will be available at the Marriott and Centre Court lots.
Safety for our participants, volunteers, and staff is our number one concern. Any decision we make regarding the production or cancellation of the event will be made with their interest first and foremost. If mother nature does not cooperate on race morning - we will delay the event until the conditions are safe - this delay will continue for a reasonable amount of time until we deem it necessary to cancel the event. If time permits and if the weather poses a threat that is certain to make us cancel the event in the hours prior the start, we will notify participants of the race cancellation via email as soon as that decision is made.
There are no refunds for the event and all proceeds benefit the Palmetto Dunes Cares Fund, a charitable giving initiative targeting the areas of health, environment, arts and culture, community development, and education within the greater Hilton Head area. In case of cancellation, race t-shirts may be picked up at the race site on race morning - or, at the Palmetto Dunes POA Office (MAP) on race day between 10am and 4pm. We do not mail race shirts.
