About This Activity

Join us for the 1st Annual 4 Leaf Clover 5K in Historic Downtown Aiken, SC on Friday, March 18th at 6pm.  You will begin your run on the Newberry St. bridge and end your run on Newberry St. in front of the beautiful Aiken Community Playhouse.  This run will benefit the Aiken Department of Public Safety Police Benevolent Fund.  Monies raised help fund the ADPS Honor Guard, flowers for deaths and babies, Wall of Honor for fallen officers, retirement luncheons and more. 

You will not want to miss the action in The Alley following the race!  We will have an awards ceremony, along with music provided by one of our local bands - 40 Going North!

All runners and walkers are encouraged to participate in our costume contest.  Show your St. Patrick's Day spirit by dressing as a leprechaun or in all green - be creative!  Prizes will be given to the top two costumes.  Our volunteers on the course will be the judges.  This event will be held rain or shine.
