Weekend Overview

At Pledge the Pink, we are all about celebrating life. And having a blast while doing it.

This weekend, we will focus on the love we share, our hope for the future, and our faith that if we continue to put one foot in front of the other we will reach the finish line- together!

Here is a quick summary of our weekend. I hope you are as excited as we are.

We will gather to celebrate after each day’s race. These after-parties are very casual (smelly race attire). The awesome food is included for all our registrants. Family, friends, fans, and supporters are all welcome to join the festivities for $15 per person. Please purchase extra lunch tickets here to ensure that we have enough for everyone. Cash bars will be pouring at all the parties as well. Operative word there is “cash”… it makes the drinks pour faster!

We will have bag drops available daily. Stuff your bag with keys, a clean shirt, some flops, and your favorite koozy. Leave it with us at the start line each day and you can pick it up when you cross the finish line!

Only ticket holders wearing official wristbands will be allowed under the tent for Friday night’s festivities. If you do not have a bracelet, you can still come join the fun but you’ll have to watch from the Sandbar.

Please note that all bingo players must be 18 years of age and the shows will contain adult content and language.

If you haven’t purchased Bingo tickets, please go here.

We will play three rounds of bingo that night and the payouts will be $500, $500, and $1000.

We still have a few seats left on our buses to take folks to/from Habersham on Saturday. They will depart Fripp beach club between 6:45-6:50am and will return between 11am – 1:45pm. Please click here if you’d like to purchase bus tickets.

We start on time so do not be late. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before start so you can hear that day’s announcements and updates. Survivors will line up in the front, followed by the runners, and then walkers behind them. We will allow the survivors to start first and then officially start the clock approximately two minutes later, so there is controlled chaos as the runners overtake the survivors. Please be safe and courteous as you pass.

Our courses will remain open and manned for four hours. After that, we are required to break everything down and be off the roads, pathways, and beaches. If you don’t think you can complete the 10 miles within 4 hours, please utilize the shortcuts.

Remember, we do not have any vehicles or manpower to pick you up unless it is a medical emergency (and you should call 911).

We have most everything you need along the courses but most people do stuff their pockets or stash some goodies in their fanny packs. We encourage everyone to carry the following items, depending on how long you anticipate being on the course: sunscreen, bug spray/wipes, bandaids, gel pads, glide, cash, drivers license, phone/camera.
Bandaids, bug spray, sunscreen… we’ve got it.. But you might want to lather up and throw a bandaid in your pocket just in case! Listen to your body. If you feel dizzy, weak, nauseous, overheated, or exhausted- tell the people around you and then sit your butt down in the shade. Notify the closest volunteer so we can have EMS come check you out- they will be on site every day. Call 911 for life threatening emergencies.
We have a wee obsession with flamingos. Not only because they are fun, but because in our world, they represent a life-saving donation. Our flock of flamingos will be set up in front of the beach club this year. Here’s a link to the history behind our flamingo obsession. And here’s a link to explain how Flocks of Love works.
If you would like to receive the fundraising prize packages, please make sure you check the YES box in your dashboard. If you would rather NOT get the incentive prizes, please make sure you check the NO button. If you checked yes and you qualify for prizes (starting at $300 raised), your prize bags will be waiting for you at the Flocks of Love tent at Packet Pickup (in the circle).
We are so excited to offer these tribute signs again this year and we anticipate them being a tradition moving forward. For more info or to purchase a sign, please go here. And, just as a reminder, if you purchase a sign or if someone buys one for you, you may take it home with you on Sunday. Talk about a great keepsake!
We are making hometown mileage arrow signs (at Packet Pickup and Friday Afterparty only) which will later be attached to poles and displayed at the beach club. We will have supplies available on Thurs and Fri for y’all to make your masterpieces!
As is tradition with our flock, every year we create an honor board for all our registrants to sign. This is not only a tribute to the people you walk/run for, but it is a living tribute to all of you. Make your mark and be part of history. The Board will be at Thursday’s party and at the Merchandise tables every day over the weekend.
Enjoy a complimentary rubdown at the finish lines so you’ll be ready to do it again the next day! These same therapists are also accepting bookings for evening appointments 2022 Massage
We are bringing our store items, including a few new goodies, so head over to our merchandise tent as soon as you arrive. Inventory is already very low on several items and we do not print any additional shirts etc so if you are reading this before September 14, we strongly encourage you to buy online while we still have some sizes/styles available.
Golf cart parking at Fripp is fairly easy to find and our volunteers will be out there to help direct you. If you are driving to Habersham, please remember to carpool. The parking areas are about three blocks from the start line and our volunteers will guide you.
The best reunion and welcome party on the planet! Come to the Beach Club between 3-8pm to get all your event credentials and swag, and hook up with your 1500 BFFs. Newbie Zone, merchandise tents, arts & crafts, DJ Alan, and lots of ridiculous games you don’t want to miss.
Our posse of professional photographers will be capturing our festivities all weekend long. We are talking thousands of top notch, high resolution Kodak moments! These photos will be available online within a few weeks. We’ll send everyone an email with a link and you can relive the magic forever.
It should go without saying, but in order to participate in the three walk/runs you must be a paid registrant and wear your designated race bib. All our bibs are customized with your name and personalized race details. Each race day has a designated bib and you must be wearing the appropriate bib in order to participate on that day. If you can’t make it to Thursday’s Packet Pickup Party, a friend can get it for you OR you can pick-up your packet and race bib before each race at the start line.
We are doing a big 50-50 raffle this year and will be selling $20 tickets starting NOW! Go here to purchase tix on our website and you will be entered to win half the pot!

We have designated short cuts for those of you not able to do all 10 miles. Please note: we do NOT have the manpower to pick you up whenever and wherever you feel like quitting (unless you require medical attention, of course). If you don’t think you can complete the course within four hours, please take advantage of the short cuts.

  • Friday on Hunting Island you’ll turn around at the beach and head back to the finish line; this abbreviated course is about 6 miles.
  • Saturday at Habersham is a double loop so all you have to do is stop at Mile 5 and cross the finish line!
  • You have two options on Sunday: stop at Mile 2.5 as we circle back to the start line where your golf cart is, or you can go to Mile 5.5 and stop at the beach club for the party. Note that if you do the latter, your golf cart will be back at the driving range and you won’t be crossing the actual finish line (because it isn’t at the beach club, it is at the driving range). We will have medals available at the beach club, however.

Our courses are officially open for four hours, so depending on your pace, our volunteers might instruct you to take a short cut if we don’t think you’ll be able to finish on time.

  • FRIDAY – 8am at the Store on Fripp (1 Tarpon Blvd)
  • SAT – 8:30am at Habersham (use 13 Market Street in Beaufort, SC for GPS directions but follow our volunteers’ instructions when you arrive to the area as parking is off site)
  • SUN – 7:30 am at the Ocean Point driving range (250 Ocean Point Dr)

Our races start on time and everyone must be lined up for announcements at least 15 minutes before the official start times. We start taking the start line down immediately afterward, and we relocate all our resources, so please do not arrive late and assume that you can start whenever you want. We do not have manpower to drive you to a further point along the course, nor do we have the resources to keep volunteers and supplies on the course because you arrive 10 minutes late. Thank you for understanding.

This year it is all about the hat! We want yall to come up with the biggest, baddest, pinkest, flamingo-ist, and most off-the-chain hysterical bonnets you can. Our Mad Hattery theme includes a derby hat contest on Thursday during our Packet Pickup Party. Make sure our photographers take your picture so that you’ll be officially entered into the contest and we will announce the big winner Friday morning at the start line! We encourage everyone to wear a fun hat each and every day- first place trophies will be given to the best hats of the day! That’s FOUR trophies on the line, yall!

We’ve created the courses and set the start times to take advantage of tides every morning, so yall will have plenty of room to walk, waddle, run, shell hunt, and take tons of selfies.
We have plenty of pit stop stations along the route each day with water, sports drink, snacks, and toilets. Feel free to bring your own water bottle and refill at these stations. Review the course maps so you are familiar with the distances in between stations: roughly every 2.5 to 3 miles.
If it is pouring rain, we walk. If it is snowing, we walk. If it is hot, we walk. If it is cold, we walk. If the sky is full of cicadas, we walk. We might have to delay a moment if there’s lightning in the area but bottom line yall, the show goes on!
There is free WIFI at the beach club, so you’ll have plenty of service while we’re there.
Survivors are asked to visit the MUSC tent at Packet Pickup to receive a special Survivor Swag Bag. Your Thursday bib will have a “Survivor” tear strip to present to the volunteers.
