Join us at Cypress Gardens for the third annual Bright Ideas 5K! You'll enjoy a challenging 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 to 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.
