Play Outside Beaufort was conceptualized by race directors and outdoor enthusiasts who wanted to find a way to promote the awesome and unique outdoor environment in Beaufort. A centralized source for all things outside was needed, and this group decided to put together a site to help visitors and locals alike find races, events and other information. Whether you’re a race director and would like to get the word out about your event, or if you are looking for your next challenge, Play Outside Beaufort is the place to find it all.
Shannon is a middle of the pack race and outdoor enthusiast who has done a wide variety of outdoor events, from triathlons to paddle-biathlons, to marathons and trail races. She loves a unique race and likes to travel with her family for a run-cation. She is the race director for the Chilly Bean 5k & 10k at Coosaw Point neighborhood on Ladys Island SC and truly enjoys putting on a race for her fellow runners. Besides running, Shannon likes to swim, paddleboard, bike, and is in 200-hour teacher training to become a yoga instructor. Her favorite outdoor activity is anything that her whole family can do together, including her 4 legged run partner, Daisy.
Martha enjoys doing anything outdoors from running to biking, swimming, and kayaking. She has competed in several full and half marathons and a half Ironman. She is the race director for the Superhero vs Villain 5k in Port Royal. “Putting on a race for others is just as rewarding if not more so than participating in a race.” When Martha is not outside, she can be found lifting weights or teaching yoga/Pilates or hanging out with family and friends.
