The Charleston Digital Corridor, along with title sponsor Charleston County Economic Development, is pleased to announce that registration for the 2019 Innovators' 5k (iFiveK) is officially open. The race will be held at Riverfront Park on April 4th, 2019 at 6:30pm. Proceeds from this annual race support execution of the Digital Corridor's talent strategy.

Additional sponsors of the annual iFiveK feature prominent companies associated with the development of Charleston's tech economy including BoomTown, Blackbaud, Benefitfocus, AVOXI, Google, Tabula Rasa Healthcare, Comcast Business, Atlatl Software, Ceterus, Carepoint, MAU Workforce Solutions, eGroup, Immedion, and Bibliolabs.

"Charleston County Economic Development is excited to be the title sponsor of the iFiveK race for the third year in a row," said Charleston County Economic Development Executive Director Steve Dykes. "We are passionate about supporting the tech community and this event provides an amazing atmosphere to network and showcase our community's top talent."

"Blackbaud is proud to support the Charleston Digital Corridor in bringing together Charleston's tech community for the 2019 iFiveK," said Peggy Anderson, Vice President of Talent Acquisition at Blackbaud. "We look forward to another fun event filled with friendly competition and networking with some of Charleston's best and brightest tech talent."

The iFiveK has become a favorite athletic and networking event for Charleston's tech community. As one of only a handful of evening, weekday races in the region, the iFiveK historically sells out ahead of the event each year. The SPIRIT Award will be presented to the team with the, well......most spirit. This includes, costumes, training video, social media participation, and fastest runner. Does your team have what it takes?

"When you look around the country, not many cities host events for a targeted business community- Charleston does! The Charleston Digital Corridor is honored to host our vibrant tech community for yet another fun evening of competition and networking," said Corridor Director, Ernest Andrade.
