Viking Dash - Wilmington, NC

Sun November 17, 2019 Wilmington, NC 28412 US Directions

Half Marathon Course

The Half marathon course takes place on a mixture of different running surfaces.
NOTE:  This is a 2-lap course

Start - Mile 2.1:  Hard packed trail around the lake
Mile 2.1 - Mile 2.5:  Combination of soft sand & hard packed gravel
Mile 2.5 - Mile 3:  Paved running trail
Mile 3 - Mile 4.25: Without question - the most scenic and interesting part of the course. This section is also the most challenging as the running surface is a mixture of hard-packed dirt covered with pine needles and some sections of soft sand.  This section takes runners down along the Cape Fear River marsh, and has some surprising elevation changes.  
Note:  Be alert - a couple of hundred yards after leaving the marsh area along the river, runners will encounter a stretch of about 150 yards, where there will be a number of tree roots laying have-buried across the trail. We will do our best to mark these with orange spray chalk.
Mile 4.25 - Mile 5:  Pavement (Old River Rd.)
Mile 5 - Mile 5.7: Combination of soft sand, pine needles & hard packed gravel
Mile 5.7 - Finish: Hard packed trail around the lake

Repeat for Lap 2
