The Bluffton Lutzie 43 5K is an annual race to bring attention to the dangers of distracted driving, as well as it serves as a fundraiser for the Bluffton Lutzie 43 Scholarship. Bluffton area students who are graduating high school or in college can apply for the scholarship. Each year the amount has changed due to the amount of money raised.
The race starts at the Bluffton Oyster Factory and winds through Historic Old Town Bluffton and along the May River. Compete in the 5K with the entire family! Professionally timed by the Palmetto Running Company.
First 300 runners will receive a Lutzie 5K race shirt.
Custom Medals to Overall male and female and top 3 division winners.
The Town of Bluffton hosted its first Lutzie 43 5K Road Race on August 3, 2019. The 5K course was run through Bluffton’s Old Town Historic District.
The Lutzie 43 Foundation started the Road Race in 2014, shortly after Philip Lutzenkirchen’s passing. The race is hosted in Marietta, Georgia, Philip’s hometown, but has grown over the past years to feature remote runs from everywhere in the country.
