Please note, due to the expansion of Shelter Cove Harbor we have decided to run the 2017 Hilton Head Firecracker Run on the exact same course as schedule but in the opposite direction. Running the race in the opposite direction will give our previous runners a completely different experience and alleviate some of the congestion in the construction area of the course. We look forward to seeing you on the 4th.
Thanks Mark Weisner
