If you are a fan of the “mullet” hairstyle, or proudly sport one of your own, mark your calendar for Saturday, March 2. Dubbed the Mullet Haul, this third annual trail run encourages runners to wear either real or imitation mullets during their participation in the race, held at the Mullet Hall Equestrian Center on Johns Island. The Mullet Haul Trail Run features both a 5- and 10-mile off-road run on the equestrian trails of the park on Johns Island March 2. Both races begin at 10 a.m. Runners are welcomed to, but not required to sport a mullet hairstyle as part of this themed event. The best mullet and themed costume will be awarded a prize. Following the races, awards will be presented for the top runners, and all participants will be invited to take part in a post-race party featuring live music and complimentary food and beverages.
Online registration for the Mullet Haul Trail Run is open now through March 1 at www.ccprc.com/mullethaul. Late registration and packet pickup will be available on site on race day, March 2, from 8–9:30 a.m. T-shirts are available for those who register by Feb. 22.
The Mullet Haul is for ages 10 and older. Participants ages 10-15 must be accompanied by an adult; however, adult chaperones do not need to participate in the run. Dogs and strollers are not allowed at this event.
Traditionally open for horse owners, trail riding and equestrian events only, Mullet Hall Equestrian Center is located at 2662 Mullet Hall Road (off of River Road) on Johns Island. This October, the facility will host the inaugural Lowcountry Trail Half Marathon. Visit www.ccprc.com for details.
