Half-Moon Outfitters Invites You to Our 5th Annual Foothills Drifter 6K Trail Race in Greenville, SC


The Foothills Drifter 6k is a rain/sleet/snow or shine event. We have every intention of forging ahead regardless of weather and hope you are all up to the task! We have quite a track record with the weather man and expect the 3rd annual race will stick to the The 2011 race was held in 40 degree drizzle and the 2010 race was held in sleet and freezing rain. If Mother Nature brings it again, we think Clint Eastwood would want each of you to bundle up, strap on your running shoes and show us what you are made of!

A few of Clint's words of wisdom: "I don't believe in pessimism. If something doesn't come up the way you want, forge ahead. If you think it's going to rain, it will." "If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster." "Go ahead, make my day." "Do you feel lucky punk? Well, do you?"

The race will be held regardless of inclement weather and will not have a rain date or any intentional delays. So don't ask for refunds, because it really won't make our day.

Race T-shirts will be Patagonia Capilene 1 Stretch tees! Race T-shirt sizes are only guaranteed for registrations prior to January 21, 2014. If you register after January 21, 2014 you will get a race T-shirt but sizes will be on a first-come, first-served basis at Packet Pickup.

The Foothills Drifter 6k is a rain/sleet/snow or shine event. We have every intention of forging ahead regardless of weather and hope you are all up to the task!

If Mother Nature brings it again, we think Clint Eastwood would want each of you to bundle up, strap on your running shoes and show us what you are made of!

A few of Clint's words of wisdom: "I don't believe in pessimism. If something doesn't come up the way you want, forge ahead. If you think it's going to rain, it will." "If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster." "Go ahead, make my day." "Do you feel lucky punk? Well, do you?"

The race will be held regardless of inclement weather and will not have a rain date or any intentional delays. So don't ask for refunds, because it really won't make our day.

7pm
Hippodrome
360 Concord St.
Charleston, SC 29401 [map]


Mark Synnott has a mission: to seek out and climb the world’s most remote cliffs.

For Mark, the journey is as important as the climb, and his quest has taken him to the Arctic, to Asia’s Karakoram Mountains, and to Amazonian jungles. Exploring seldom-seen places is his specialty: most recently he discovered the Ennedi desert of Chad in North Africa, where his team of top-notch climbers made first ascents of surreal and other-worldly rock spires and arches.

Mark is a skilled raconteur who tempers his tales of high adrenalin with droll humor. With breathtaking images, this evening with Mark is a celebration of adventure.

Acoustic Rock Series - in Partnership with WCOO The Bridge at 105.5 FM - Xavier Rudd

Half-Moon Outfitters Acoustic Rock Series - in Partnership with WCOO The Bridge at 105.5 FM - Xavier Rudd September 01, 2010
4pm
Half-Moon Outfitters West Ashley, SC [map]

We invite you to join us at our West Ashley store for a short acoustic set and meet and greet with Xavier Rudd as part of the Half-Moon Outfitters and WCCO The Bridge at 105.5 "Acoustic Rock" Series. Please contact the store at 843-556-6279 or southwindermere@halfmoonoutfitters.com with any questions.

Up-beat and down-to-Earth, Xavier Rudd's roots, reggae and blues-infused world music has made him a favourite on the live circuit internationally. With vocals and didgeridoos firing on all cylinders, a slide guitar howling above the beat of his stomp box and various other bits of musical gear surrounding him, his multi-instrument approach is in itself a worthy spectacle. But it¹s the calibre of the songs that really impresses.

Half-Moon Outfitters Acoustic Rock Series - in Partnership with WCOO The Bridge at 105.5 FM - Karl Denson July 22, 2010
3pm-4pm
Half-Moon Outfitters West Ashley, SC [map]

We invite you to join us at our West Ashley store for a short acoustic set and meet and greet with Karl Denson as part of the Half-Moon Outfitters and WCCO The Bridge at 105.5 "Acoustic Rock" Series. Please contact the store at 843-556-6279 or southwindermere@halfmoonoutfitters.com with any questions.

Like a Super Nova burning bright in the night sky comes Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe. Based out of San Diego, KDTU began its journey in 1998 after bandleader Karl Denson decided to change gears five years after he’d help create The Greyboy Allstars. GBA had proven themselves as the ultimate party band, spreading their “West Coast Boogaloo” style all over the world, making “Jazz” a dance term once again. Karl set out to take this formula to the next level by putting more emphasis on vocals and adding some funk, r&b and hip hop elements. It turned out to be a winning combination which set KDTU on the top of the heap in the touring world from 1999 through 2005. In 2005 Karl decided to get back to his roots and work in a smaller jazzier setting. During 2006 and 2007 Karl led KD3, a trio configuration featuring Sax, Organ and Drums. This led to the 2007 release of KD3’s “Lunar Orbit”, an album which was a great critical success. In 2008, Karl rejoined his former boss Lenny Kravitz and spent the year country hopping through Europe and North America. In 2009 Karl went back into the studio and conjured up what is being hailed as the most soulful KDTU adventure yet, “Brother’s Keeper” which was released Sept 15th, 2009.

Acoustic Rock Series - in Partnership with WCOO The Bridge at 105.5 FM - Michael Franti and Ryan Bingham

Half-Moon Outfitters Acoustic Rock Series - in Partnership with WCOO The Bridge at 105.5 FM - Michael Franti and Ryan Bingham May 25, 2010
3:45pm
Half-Moon Outfitters West Ashley, SC

The Half-Moon Outfitters Acoustic Rock Series in Partnership with WCOO The Bridge at 105.5 FM is proud to announce a double-header event featuring two great artists: Michael Franti & Ryan Bingham.

Michael Franti is a very big man who has always dared to say very big things through his joyous and passionate music during an unusually diverse and highly impressive career. Yet for all the wide-ranging, yet consistent excellence of his body of work, what¹s most impressive about Michael Franti as a recording artist and live performer is his ability to inspire. Ultimately, the heartfelt music that Franti makes and his dedication to greater understanding on a global level, are not two aspects of his life, but very much one and the same.

Ryan Bingham is a rodeo bull rider turned Americana singer/songwriter. The song 'The Weary Kind (Theme Song from Crazy Heart)' that he co-wrote with legendary musician T-Bone Burnett for 'Crazy Heart' was nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Original Song category. Long before he was an Oscar nominee, Ryan Bingham was a real-life cowboy, a handsome roughneck living out his own version of a Cormac McCarthy novel. His music is dusty. It's smoky. It's packed with killer guitar riffs. It channels great country and folk rockers like Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan and Lynyrd Skynyrd, but don't be fooled - it's still 100 percent Ryan Bingham.

Come see Michael Franti play a short acoustic set followed by a set by Ryan Bingham as part of our Acoustic Rock Series in partnership with WCOO The Bridge at 105.5 FM.

Please contact the store at 843-556-6279 or southwindermere@halfmoonoutfitters.com with any questions.

Reindeer Run

Half-Moon Outfitters Sponsors Reindeer Run December 05, 2009
Charleston, SC

Runners begin at 9:00 am and Walkers at 9:05 am. The race route starts and finishes in front of Southend Brewery.

The Reindeer Run, presented by Piggly Wiggly and Half-moon Outfitters, is a family-oriented, pet-friendly 5k run/walk through the lower peninsula of downtown Charleston, SC. The event has grown significantly over the years; from only a few hundred participants to record attendance of almost 2,500 runners in 2008. Throughout the history of the event, the Charitable Society of Charleston (CSC) has donated over $300,000 to the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). In 2008 alone CSC donated $51,000 to the Children’s Hospital. These funds help MUSC develop and maintain a variety of programs in the Children’s Hospital as well as The Darby Children’s Research Institute. This includes research in the prevention and treatment of childhood diseases.

Proceeds from the Reindeer Run are split between MUSC Children’s Hospital and the Charitable Society of Charleston. 80% of the funds go to the MUSC Children’s Hospital and 20% go to the Charitable Society of Charleston’s endowment. In 2008 the Reindeer Run contributed $12,000 to the CSC endowment. This endowment provides grants and donations to local non-profit organizations which benefit both children and elderly residents of the Lowcountry.
