Almost 9-Miler Trail Run @ The Biggin Creek Trail

RACE DISTANCES: 9 miles, 20 miles, 30 miles

Are you ready for something special? With the opening of the Biggin Creek Bike Trail, we have the opportunity to provide you with a challenging new location for the event! People, we have HILLS, SHARP TURNS, DROPS, CHALLENGING CLIMBS!!! All right here in the Lowcountry! Solid, single track madness is what you will find here! Still offering a staggered start that is based on age and gender…which greatly levels the playing field to benefit the really young…and those with some age on them!

Back for more… the Double and Triple… Almost 9 Miler:

The Double:
Who wants to run almost 20 miles? Four times around Biggin Creek will get you close to 20 miles on your trusted GPS device!

The Triple:
Who wants to run almost 30 miles? Six times around Biggin Creek will get you close to 30 miles!

All participants that complete their distance get the Almost 9 Miler Finisher Coin.

Both of these new distances will start at the same time as the single (two looped) Almost 9 Miler, with the same staggered starting format and be their own stand alone event with their own awards. So, what are you waiting for? Lace up them sneakers and join us, once again, for the craziest trail race around.

Prizes are awarded to the top 5 finishers and the youngest/oldest participants and homemade veggie soup and bread will be available to the runners after the event.

Packet Pick-Up: Morning of the race at Biggin Creek Bike Trail from 0700-0730.

Cancellation Policy: This event will happen rain or shine.
Refund Policy: I do not issue refunds or transfer registrations to another event.
Disclaimer: The Biggin Creek Trail was actually, accurately measured and is a five mile loop. Due to the twists and turns of the trail, GPS watches have a hard time keeping up and are usually always off. Also, since we run a little out and back section at the beginning of the event, you will actually exceed 10 miles, 20 miles and 30 miles. So this makes the name, Almost 9 Miler a bit confusing, doesn’t it? Why yes… it does! Enjoy the race and have fun! Not everything has to be dead on accurate, right?

Feedback From Our Customers

  • I am so thankful for the help and service I received. Natalie put me in some awesome shoes that fit properly and really help my health issues. I suffer from lower back problems and neuropathy in my left leg. These are the best shoes I've ever had!
  • Never had people more knowledgeable sell me shoes before. Usually its, "Yes, this is a shoe and we have them." I went in for an insert but learned my shoe was just the wrong size. Got some new ones and the feel great. Thanks for the kicks. I'll be back when I need new ones.
  • I'm so happy with my shoes and the service. I was totally wearing the wrong size shoe. I will be going back for another pair as soon as they come in. Thanks so much for your help and fun sense of humor.
  • Can't say enough about how helpful Carolyn and Brent have been in helping me stay in shoes that fit my running needs. And the Sat. morning runs with Marc and Brent are superb!
  • Thanks Carolyn and the rest of The Foot Store staff for all of your help in making sure I had the proper footwear. You and your staff could not have been more pleasant to deal with and I intend on sharing my experience with all of my running club friends!
