Saturday, Oct. 7 | Park Circle | 8 a.m.

The Hippie Dash is a 5K fun run/walk, sponsored by United Community Bank, 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.

What’s the point of a morning run without brunch? Following the race, gather with free-spirited friends for a celebratory brunch in at D.I.G. In The Park with live music and specials on manmosas, mimosas and breakfast. This party will be the bee’s knees!
