On January 25, 2014, the Charleston Running Club will host the 31st annual Charlie Post Classic 15K & 5K. It is the signature running event of the Charleston Running Club and it 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.

As a memorial, the Charleston Running Club funds an annual scholarship in his memory through the athletic department of the College of Charleston.
