This 5K run/walk/roll & 10K run, held at Fort Macon State Park will benefit the Friends of Fort Macon. The 10K & 5K course at Fort Macon State Park is not only one of the newest courses in the State, but already proven to be one of the most challenging courses in eastern North Carolina. The natural beauty of this course is unmatched. The course boardwalks cross natural wetlands and continues through an early growth maritime forest and thickets. It also wanders across pristine sand dunes. The 10K has the added challenge of running on the beach beside the Atlantic Ocean, and is a run ONLY event.
