Bright Ideas 5K

All News

Join us again at beautiful Cypress Gardens in Moncks Corner for the 2nd Annual Bright Ideas 5K sponsored by PARIC and Cooperative Building Solutions. This unique all-terrain race kicks off at 8 a.m. on Saturday, April 22 and winds through the park's trails against the backdrop of a blackwater cypress swamp in full bloom. The best part is that the race helps raise money to directly benefit local teachers through our Bright Ideas educational grant program. Proceeds from the race fund grants of up to $1,500 to support innovative and effective classroom projects that aren't otherwise covered by the school. These grants are awarded annually to teachers in public and private K-12 schools in Berkeley Electric Cooperative’s service area. 

Sign up by March 31 for a guaranteed race t-shirt and a pretty snazzy finisher medal. The race sold out last year so don't miss your chance to romp in the swamp this spring! To learn more of sign up visit
