Event Description

The Bluffton Independence Day 5K is the perfect way to begin your Independence Day Celebration. Make plans to run, jog or walk Sunday, June 30th, 9 a.m. at Martin Family Park. This is the first event of the Town’s Independence Day Celebration in Bluffton’s Historic District. Come back for the Independence Day Celebration pre-party at Martin and DuBois Parks and finish the evening with the Town’s firework displays at Oyster Factory & Wright Family Parks. Pre-fireworks party is 5:00 pm – 8:30 pm at Martin Family Park.

This annual race, in which strollers and dogs are most welcome, will benefit the Mayor’s “Stay Safe, Bluffton!” campaign and student scholarships to encourage mindful driving on Bluffton and Beaufort County roads as well as reward students who are safe driving ambassadors.

This 5K, professionally timed by the Palmetto Running Company, will also introduce the “Mayor’s Cup,” a trophy which will reside at Bluffton’s Town Hall and list the female and male top race winners each year. The Town hopes this sought-after award will help in the Town’s efforts to raise awareness of safe, mindful driving throughout all ages in our community to reduce tragic vehicle incidents. 

Start your Independence Day Celebration with this event and stay all day in beautiful, downtown Bluffton.  All ages and skills levels are welcome.

First 400 runners will receive a Bluffton Independence Day 5K race shirt.
