Summer is here on the Outer Banks and for many people that may mean a lot of different things, but for runners it signals the return of the Lighthouse 5K.
Sponsored by Brindley Beach Vacations, the Lighthouse 5K is a race for the whole family making it fun for everyone. The course is flat, so runners looking for a really good race time should do well; with no hills, it’s great for novice runners; and it’s a really pretty course, beginning at the historic Whalehead Club, running past the Currituck Lighthouse and through the shaded paths of Corolla.
This is our fifth year sponsoring the race with the OBX Running Club and over that time we’ve learned a lot about how to put on a good race and we think this is one of the best around.
The race is every Wednesday throughout the summer beginning next Wednesday June 13. Race time is 8:00 a.m.
Race packets can be picked up at our Corolla office at 1023 Ocean Trail on Tuesday or on site before the race on Wednesday from 6:30 to 7:30 a.m.
The $38 registration fee includes post-race breakfast and refreshments and finisher medals for all participants.
