CHARLESTON, S.C. - Members of the College of Charleston track & field and cross country teams volunteered for the local Charlie Post Classic race on Saturday on Sullivan's Island.
The team did a variety of tasks to help the Charleston Running Club with the race, such as serving as course marshals to direct the runners.
The event, organized by the Charleston Running Club is in its 30th year and honors the memory of Dr. Charlie Post, a well-known Charleston runner, triathlete and family physician who volunteered his time and medical talents to the running community.
Dr. Post had been a very active member of the Charleston Running Club, served as the head of the College of Charleston's student health services, and also was the school's team physician for varsity sports until his untimely death in 1984. As a memorial, the Charleston Running Club funds an annual scholarship in his memory through the athletic department, which goes to a member of the track & field team.
This year's recipient of the scholarship is Tiffany Sisk, a sophomore from Easley, S.C. Sisk is an excellent student in the classroom and in her freshman year won the Southern Conference Outdoor Championship in the shot put.
"We had a great time volunteering for this special event," CofC head coach Amy Seago said. "We have a great connection with the Charleston Running Club and we are happy we can be part of this event to honor Dr. Post."
