Description

Friends of Dorchester County Parks is excited to announce the first ever Ashley River Adventure Race! This unique race will feature a 5K trail run through the future Ashley River Park where racers will get a glimpse of this 85 acre site while running through pond-side open meadows and wooded riverside trails. After the run, hop on your kayak or SUP at the Howard Bridgman River Access, located just outside the park, and paddle 8.5 miles with the outgoing tide down the Ashley Scenic River. The route finishes at the beautiful and historic Inn at Middleton Place where a post-race party featuring awards, entertainment, food and beverages awaits.

Start time is 9:30 AM with packet pick up available starting at 6:30 AM at the race start at 200 Renken Rd. (spelled "Reniken" in Apple Maps). Packet pickup and the opportunity to test the course will also be available on Friday, from 11:00 AM - 6:00 PM. To utilize the shuttle service on Saturday, all participants must drop their watercraft and gear at the race start, then drive and park their vehicles at the race finish at The Inn at Middleton Plantation located at 4290 Ashley River Rd., which is approximately 15 minutes away. Participants will then be shuttled back to the start of the race. Shuttle service will begin at 6:30AM and boats and gear will not be shuttled. Shuttle service will not be offered after the race.

Chip timing will be used to track split times between race and paddle, as well as an overall time.
