The 5th Annual Barrier Island ECOthon is just over 2 months away. Scheduled for October 25th, this 35 mile sprint style adventure race includes paddling, swimming, running and biking.
Not only is this a great opportunity to test your endurance and enjoy the Lowcountry’s beauty, but it’s for a great cause as well:
The ECOthon is designed to offer you the opportunity to be fully immersed in nature while challenging your abilities, with the additional benefit of providing meaningful support to compassionate charitable organizations; the Lance Armstrong Foundation & the Charleston Tibetan Society.
In preparation for ECOthon, Charleston Waterkeeper has teamed up with some of Charleston’s most devoted open-water swim fanatics. Brett Carlson, organizer and founder of ECOthon, will be holding a weekly open-water swim clinic for interested individuals. Space will be limited, so if you’re interested in coming out make sure to email Brett at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each clinic will have a fee of roughly $10, of which part will be donated to Charleston Waterkeeper.
