Wrightsville Beach Park
321 Causeway Drive
Wrightsville Beach, NC 28480

The 5K race utilizes the popular Wrightsville Beach Loop, N Channel & Coral Drive. The 10K heads east on Salisbury St. to the most eastern Pelican Dr. cross-over, where athletes run west on Pelican Dr toward the drawbridge. The 10K route then continues underneath the drawbridge, east on Old Causeway Drive to Causeway Drive and then to Waynick Blvd. Runners will then travel south on Waynick Blvd. until they reach the halfway turn around at Taylor Street just south of the Blockade Runner Resort, and reverse the route back to the park while enjoying the beautiful waterway views along the way.
This race course is also stroller friendly! However, dogs are not allowed on this course so please leave them at home or with a non-running spectator.
