Kick off the holiday season with the Tinsel Trot

The holiday season is right around the corner, if you can believe it. Start it off right with some family-friendly fun! The 8th annual Tinsel Trot is getting ready to go and you can be a part of it. You won’t want to miss it. The event is at Old Santee Canal Park in Moncks Corner. Not to mention it’s your sneak peek of the beautiful lighting displays that line the Celebrate The Season Holiday Lights Driving Tour.

This year, the two mile fun run/walk will happen on November 20th, 21st, and 22nd. Only 500 people can participate each night, for social distancing reasons. Register for a spot for you and your family. Race entry is $10/person (+ processing fee) and includes a free shirt! Online registration available through Nov. 22, 2020 at 3:30 p.m.

You can show up anytime between 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. on your day to walk or run the course. Organizers encourage costumes and festive holiday attire but ask that you be sure to show your appropriate arm band (given at T-shirt Pickup) upon entering the park.
