Here’s something for the whole family to do. The Brindley Beach Lighthouse 5K is about as easy a 5K run as there is. 

Starting at 8:00 a.m., the race begins and ends before the heat of the day; the course is flat and most of it well-shaded. And best of all, it’s a beautiful course.

Beginning and ending at the Whalehead Club in Corolla, the course passes the historic Currituck Beach Lighthouse, heading north to the south end of Currituck Banks Reserve where there’s water and a turnaround.

 The course is entirely on pavemen, and since there is only one main road in that part of Corolla, taking a wrong turn is highly improbable.

Organized through OBX Running Club, the race includes trophies for first place male and female runners and a finisher medal for everyone. There’s also a post-race breakfast and refreshments at the finish line.

Online registration is available or on site registration on race day from 6:30.-7:30a.m.
