The 10th Annual Tiger Bass Race Series, which includes a 5K run/walk, 15K run and 1Mile run/walk kicks off on Saturday, September 16th at 8:00am, right here in Hampton Lake! The Tiger Base Race has increased in scope and popularity over the years through the enthusiasm and hard work of the Tiger Bass Race Charitable Fund Committee, Hampton Lake & Bluffton Communities, event volunteers & sponsors, and numerous local businesses in the area.
This event is fun for all ages! The races begins with music and a patriotic send off. Throughout the day, there will be music to entertain, complimentary concessions including food trucks, activities for the kids like bounce houses and face-painting, and mud more. As part of our awards ceremony and after party, top finishers have a chance to win racing medals and unique bobblehead trophies.
Proceeds from the event this year support River Ridge Academy & Memory Matters. Funds raised for River Ridge Academy will go toward needed shade structure and school ground equipment. Memory Matters will equally share as beneficiary of the event proceed. Memory Matters is a local not-for-profit center of excellence which improves the quality of life for persons with dementia and their families, providing resources, support, respite and adult day services with compassion and dignity.
