Run Ocean Isle Beach - October 28, 2023
Join us for our 10th anniversary of the BAM Race Series in Ocean Isle Beach North Carolina! BAM is short for #BigAssMedals and our 10th anniversary finisher medals do not disappoint.

Ocean Isle Beach is a beautiful coastal island in SE North Carolina. Our courses take you through some beautiful communities and the half marathon takes you around most of the island with unforgettable oceanfront views. We host a half marathon, 5K & 1 Mile in late October when the average temperatures are a High of 75 and a Low of 56.

Finisher Swag:

This year we are highlighting our beaches with massive 8” surfboard half marathon and 4” flip flop 5K finisher medals. Over the years we’ve had stain glass, lockets, artistic connecting medals, a pirate theme, 3D mosaic designs and much more - we change it up each year to bring unique medals but this year might top them all.. We hope you enjoy them!

Full color and designs that wrap around these soft finisher shirts for all participants in the events. The 10th anniversary shirts have a coastal design and runner theme and will be the same for all participants in all races.
