5K Beach Run and 10K Beach Runs
We kick off our Kayak for the Warrior activities by hosting a 5K Beach Run and 10K Fun Runs on Saturday, May 25. The event fee for the 5K is $25 and the 10K is $30. Both include a t-shirt. The race course for both races will begin on the beach near The Inn at Pine Knoll Shores and proceed east. Both runs will stay on the beach with turn-around spots clearly marked. Times will be posted immediately. Run the East will be providing chip timing. The top three finishers in several age and gender groups will receive awards.
For information on our other events including a kayak/paddleboard race and auctions, please see www.k4tw.org.
The age and gender groups are as follows:
