Run Oak Island - February 15, 2020

This is a special place for a great race and we have so many exciting new things going on for Run Oak Island 2020 - you're not going to want to miss this one!

The Full Marathon starts at 6:45am as you weave your way along the marsh, around a golf community and through the beautiful Arboretum!  Turn-around in front of the lighthouse, 12 miles of beach front running and beautiful views from the top of the ICW bridge.

This year we have Two Half Marathon options for you to choose from.  Half Marathon East will start at 6:45am along with the Full Marathon and run the eastern portion with beautiful views and no elevation going over a bridge - the Half Marathon will be FAST!  Half Marathon West will start at 7:00 and run the second half of the Full Marathon Course and includes lots of beach front running and beautiful views from the ICW bridge. Tthe 5K starts at 7:15am and the Beach Ball Miler starts at 8:30am.
