    I ran this race in 2014. The Charlie Post Classic is in it’s 32nd year and hosted by the Charleston Running Club. Things should be pretty much perfected. It’s a very large race with over 500 participants, mostly in the 15K. I guess you don’t get many chances to run a 15K (9.3 miles), so people take advantage of it.

    In 2014, I ran the 5K (3.1 miles). I like shorter races and the week after a half marathon, I wanted something short! In 2015, this race was actually BEFORE the Charleston Half Marathon, and I’m not sure when it will be in 2016. The course is nice, well marked. The split for the 5K/15K is well marked- you cannot miss it. There are water stops, along with some spectators.

    The post-race refreshments were from Black Bean Company and Triangle Char-N-Bar, and they were great. Veggie and meat burritos, cookies, yogurt, apples, bananas, etc. They also had coffee and water. The “swag” was good for a local race. Tech shirt, and you got a coupon for $10 off at Triangle and a water bottle. For the entry fee, the gear was awesome.

    My gripe is in the awards. I won 3rd overall female, which is kind of a big deal in a large race. The overall winners got medals that say “age group winner”. That would be fun if I’d won my age group, but I didn’t… I placed overall!

    It’s a very nice medal and I understand they mass-order the awards, but I wish the ribbon was correct! I would still recommend this race to others, though.
