Run the oldest 3-bridge 10K on the east coast! This is the 38th annual event!
The 10k course runs over the Memorial Bridge and across two more bridges before finishing on Water Street with a 1/3 mile flat and fast run to the finish! You'll also have a short loop down Battleship Road where you'll run in front of the Battleship USS North Carolina and take in the view of downtown Wilmington across the Cape Fear River - very picturesque. After crossing the Isabella Holmes Bridge, the course takes advantage of Wilmington's scenic Riverwalk. There will be extensive coning on the race course so you'll run safe and fast over the bridges.You know it’s going to be HOT so take the challenge with the humidity, heat, and hills of Wilmington!
The 5k course is point-to-point course starting at the Battleship and ending downtown. The race will provide shuttle/transport to the start line. 5k participants now will experience 2 of the 3 bridges of the 10k course - as well as the scenic downtown Riverwalk.
