About This Activity

Running to Give Back to our Community!
In 2016, this event raised $1200 for the Grace Sulak Foundation. Our 2017 charity will be announced soon.

The HILTON HEAD XC OPEN 5K is a one-of-a-kind race. First, this is the only running race on the island that is almost entirley on hard packed trails. The race starts and finishes on the Hilton Head Prep High School campus and then carves through the beautiful Sea Pines Forest Preserve. Runners are surrounded by the natural beauty that our LowCountry is reknown for – trails that are shaded under old live oak trees, beautiful lakes full of wildlife, and age old wetlands. Second, this race serves as a home meet for the Hilton Head Prep High School XC Team – so, the field of competitors includes cross country runners from schools in the Region as well as the general public. This makes for a fantastic scenario where racers of all ages and skill levels get to show off their talent.
