The Charlie Post Classic 15K and 5k is the signature running event of the Charleston Running Club.  Now in its 35th year, this race honors the memory of Dr. Charlie Post, a well-known Charleston runner, triathlete and family physician who volunteered his time and medical talents to the running community.

Dr. Post had been a very active member of the Charleston Running Club, served as the head of the College of Charleston’s student health services, and also was the school’s team physician for varsity sports.

As a memorial, the Charleston Running Club funds an annual scholarship in his memory through the athletic department of the College of Charleston

Light Weight Hoodies Guaranteed to all those who register before January 7, 2019.

We are happy to announce that all participants will receive hoodies this year!

Since we have set a record this year with registrations, far exceeding our expectations of the 800 hoodies we ordered,  we will be reaching out to registrants who have marked "No Shirt" when registering to find out size request. You will see only the option to pick "No Shirt" when registering, however you will receive an hoodie!

We will send out emails when we reach our race capacity this year of 1000 participants or the day after registration closes.  We will keep everyone informed of expected arrival date after we order them.  We will announce when and where hoodies may be picked up when they arrive.

If you would like to order an extra shirt visit www.charlestonrunningclubstore.com.
