President George Washington forged this area in 1791, and Wilmington Foundation and Without Limits invite you to do the same! The two organizations have partnered to bring the first Ultra race to Wilmington next January. Whether you are a participant, a sponsor, or a spectator, you will be an important part of the Southern Tour Ultra!
Known as the Woodstock of the Southeast, The Southern Tour Ultra will include a 50 Mile open race, a 50-kilometer race and a 50-mile team age graded relay. Be a part of history while promoting healthy living and having fun. With awesome classic rock, camping, tailgating and an all-day bon fire, this will be much more than an Ultra race.

With a beauty unparalleled, this unmanaged coastal wilderness includes a labyrinth of trees and winding paths that take you from the historical soil where President Washington stood to the wind-swept coastal plains. You run in a tunnel of vines and dense forest and open into a sand-laden marshland with amazing views. One with nature, you may encounter osprey flying overhead or even deer on the trails—all part of the Ultra-experience. The blue and orange skies of the coastal Carolinas beckon you to keep going! It is an Ultra and despite the conditions, you cannot give up!
Join us in presenting this unique event to our community and to the Ultra race community.
