Justin Pepper 5K

Saturday, September 4 @ 7:00 am


The Justin Pepper 5k will again be both a LIVE and a VIRTUAL event for 2021, and will include the popular one mile kids fun run this year.

The LIVE event will be held on Saturday, September 4, 2021, at Palmetto Bone & Joint, beginning at 7 AM.  The route will start and end at PB& J (104 Ellett Road, Chapin) and run through the Chapin Business and Technology Park at Brighton. The Justin Pepper 5K kicks off the Chapin Labor Day Festival weekend.

The VIRTUAL event will run from Saturday, September 4th through Labor Day (September 6th). It may be run anywhere, anytime….even on a treadmill. JP5K has contracted with RaceJoy to enhance your virtual run experience.  (Just to note, this is a GPS tracked app that will unfortunately not work when running on a treadmill.) The virtual event is mainly for fun and times will not be incorporated into the competitive in-person event on Saturday, September 4th.

This is a charity event.  Proceeds support The Justin Pepper Foundation. Established in 2007, the foundation provides awards and scholarships to youth that excel in community service activities.  In the past eight years, the foundation has provided $37,000 in scholarships, assisting students with educational opportunities beyond high school.
