The Charleston Digital Corridor (CDC), along with title sponsor Charleston County Economic Development, is pleased to announce the 2022 iFiveK will once again be hosted in Downtown Charleston. The race, scheduled for June 2, 2022 at 6:30pm, will start and finish at the newly completed Charleston Tech Center.

The new 5k route leads participants through the CDC's rapidly redeveloping neighborhood along the way, including the many new restaurants and bars that are quickly becoming favorites for the 400 employees at the Charleston Tech Center, and visitors alike. Proceeds from the iFiveK support the CDC's Diversity and CDCu initiatives.

"We are passionate about supporting the tech community and this event provides an amazing atmosphere to network and showcase our community's top talent," said Charleston County Economic Development Executive Director, Steve Dykes. "And what a great opportunity to see the Tech Center first-hand."

The iFiveK has become the 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. Registration for the June 2 race opens today.

"After a two-year hiatus, we are excited to bring the race back downtown, where it all started," said CDC Director, Ernest Andrade. "We're grateful to all our sponsors and know they are eager to get their employees together for an evening of fun, wellness, and networking."

In addition to the run, the CDC is partnering with neighboring restaurants and bars to provide a few specials and discounts for participants after the race. Those include: Revelry, Edmund's Oast, Kickin' Chicken, and Crust.
