Floppin’ Flounder 5K

The Charleston Running Club has stepped up and taken over this year’s Floppin’ Flounder 5K, a charitable race to help raise funds for the Sullivan’s Island volunteer fire department. This year’s race runs a new course, but it should be familiar to long-time Floppin’ Flounder runners. Familiarize yourself with the course before race day, and get your running shoes on and get active for a good cause.

June 3-4. 8-11 a.m. Free. Sullivan’s Island Elementary School. 2015 Ion Ave. Sullivan’s Island.
