General Information

We are excited for our 28th Annual Event!  Every year, the Charleston Running Club holds the Floppin’ Flounder 5K to provide funds for the Sullivans Island Fire & Rescue Department and the Charleston Running Club.

You’ll notice some small additions this year we know you will enjoy! Once again you’l receive a finisher medal as well as have the option to have other refreshments besides water!


3.1 miles

The 5K course is a flat speedy course prime for setting state records!  You’ll start on where Middle St. and Hennessy St / Station 15 intersect. Once you reach Station 9 you’ll loop back around on Osceolla Ave and come back around to take a left on Middle St where you proceed to head to Central Ave and veer left. You’ll proceed to the end of Central Ave where you’ll turn right on Station 20 1/2 and then turn right again back on to Middle St.  Once you are back on Middle St you’ll race back to where you started and veer left onto Hennessy St. where you’ll see the finish line!
