In honor of John Flanagan, Run Hard is renaming the 2017 Run Hard 10K to the John Flanagan 10K. John, known by F3 Nation as Cheech, was an avid runner. He was a veteran of many local races and had completed the Kiawah Half Marathon last December. John was registered to run the next Disney Full Marathon. He and his wife, Rebekah, shared a love of running.
John loved his Gamecocks, his Steelers, his grill, his church (Saxe Gotha PC), and most importantly, his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Those that knew John best would tell you he was passionate about his family-Rebekah and their children, Jack and Rylee. They were known as the Flanagan Four.
On the morning of June 21, 2017, John was fatally struck by a car in Lexington. He was doing something he loved to do: running with his F3 brothers. John was 38 years old.
Help us celebrate his life by doing what we he would be doing on race day: Run. Encourage. Leave No Doubt.
A portion of the proceeds from the John Flanagan 10K will be donated to the Future Scholars of SC, to benefit Jack and Rylee's college fund.
If you would like to make an additional donation to the fund:
