Saturday, Oct. 7 | Park Circle | 8 a.m.
The Hippie Dash is a 5K fun run/walk that raises awareness and funding for people with disabilities.
A portion of the proceeds will also benefit Special Olympics South Carolina.
Far out dudes, hip chicks, flower children and funky fidos are invited to don their best 70s attire as they move and groove their way through a psychedelic 3.1 mile course around Park Circle.
Proceeds from the 2017 event will help Palmetto Goodwill increase advocacy efforts to evoke change by spreading awareness regarding issues that people with disabilities face on a daily basis including transportation, housing and employment.
The Hippie Dash should be fun but there’s nothing wrong with a little bit of competition. This year, we will be officially timing the race. Top male, female and child finisher will receive a commemorative medal.
Pull our your best 70s-inspired outfit. Prizes will be awarded to the best dressed Dude, Dudette, Flower Child and Pooch. Visit your local Goodwill store to score some groovy vintage duds without spending too much bread!
Bring everyone to Park Circle for a groovy time! Runners, walkers, children and pups of all ages (and speeds) are encouraged to participate. The Hippie Dash is all about fun, friendship and supporting a good cause.
What’s the point of a morning run without brunch? Following the race, gather with free-spirited friends for a celebratory brunch in Park Circle. More details to come soon but you can be sure this party will be the bee’s knees!
