Aiken Electric Cooperative is pleased to announce the return of RUN UNITED, a race event that benefits United Way of Aiken County. The race event includes a 1-mile Kids’ Fun Run, 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon. The race routes include the horse and historic districts and South Boundary. A special tribute to our fallen heroes, “Wear Blue Mile” will be along the route for all three races. RUN UNITED will also feature a food truck village for
runners and spectators to enjoy. All participants in each race category will receive a medal, souvenir photo, and t-shirt. Cash rewards of $4,300 will be distributed among top performers in the half marathon category.
Kids aged 3-9 will participate for free, thanks to the generosity of Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, as well as receive a free cup of ice cream compliments of Murphy Auto Group and Clemson’s Best Ice Cream. Race
