We will be hosting this race at the beautiful Poplar Grove Plantation just north of Wilmington, NC. Participants and spectators will get to enjoy the farm, farm animals and the natural atmosphere of Southeastern Coastal NC.
You must be 21 or older to participate in the beer portion of the race. You do not have to drink beer to participate, beer is simply another element to the race and is optional.
The race course is on the Abbey Nature Trail adjacent to Poplar Grove Plantation. The trail is off road and has some roots but is fairly flat. There is 1 wooden bridge that goes over a pond that has a slight decline and incline, otherwise normal running shoes will be acceptable on this trail, however, If you have trail shoes, wear them.
