Area Events: BFF Pink Ribbon Run

27 Feb

As we speak, Barefoot Landing is gearing up for the inaugural Breast Friends Forever Pink Ribbon Run! Taking place on Friday, March 8th and Saturday, March 9th, thousands of guests are expected to turn out. In partnership with Grand Strand Running Club, Faith Works Partnerships and Susan G. Komen Lowcountry For The Cure, the event will promote awareness and raise funds for research and treatment of breast cancer.

The two-day event kicks off on Friday with an Expo near the Alabama Theatre where participants are invited to mingle and pick up their race packs. There will be a fun area for kids, and the evening will include a survivor celebration ceremony, a tribute walk and live music from bands.

On the following day, the focus will be on the races. At 8:30 am the 5K and 10K will commence, traversing the layout of Barefoot Resort. There will also be a Tot Trot for kids 5 years and under and a Kids Run for those age 6-10, both of which are free events.  At 10:30, there will be an awards banquet and closing ceremony at Dirty Don’s Marina in front of the Barefoot Yacht Club.

This event is sure to be a fun time for patrons and a great way to give real support to a worthy cause. More info can be found at the BFF Pink Ribbon Run website. If you’re planning on participating and spending some a weekend in beautiful North Myrtle Beach, we’d love to help you pick out the perfect accommodations!
