Beaufort ~ Run Forrest Run 5k/Bridge Walk

Event Details

Grab your running shoes and your best Forrest Gump attire – it’s Shrimp Season in the Lowcountry! That means it’s time for the Beaufort Shrimp Festival’s annual Run Forrest Run 5k. After all, nobody knows shrimp more than Forrest and Bubba.
Race through iconic movie locations to make Lowcountry history. Feel the ocean breeze in your poncho as you compete over Woods Memorial Bridge. Take your photo with a Forrest Gump impersonator at the Start / Finish line. Winners will receive the rare and highly prized Shrimp Trophy. (But please, don’t barbecue, broil, bake, or saute it!)
We encourage participants to get groovy with themed costumes and unique outfits. Bring your favorite characters to life as you race towards shrimp glory. May the best Forrest win!
