Do You Enjoy Racing Or Training While On Vacation?

When most people think Hilton Head Island, they think of South Carolina’s beautiful Lowcountry. They imagine the beaches, the sun and the surf. Lots of great seafood dinners. The picture-perfect ancient oak trees with dripping Spanish moss and the warm, sultry evening air.

What they probably DON’T think of is sports, except perhaps golf or maybe tennis. But that’s changing. Hilton Head Island is fast becoming a mecca for endurance athletes, with a burgeoning cottage industry of races and competitions. At Beachside Hilton Head Island, we are thrilled to welcome these athletes to our beloved island.
