The Brindley Beach Lighthouse 5K is a family friendly race.

The Brindley Beach Lighthouse 5K is a family-friendly race.

We’re probably a little bit prejudiced on the subject, by we think the Brindley Beach Lighthouse 5K in Corolla NC is just about the nicest 5K race around.

The course is flat, the scenery restful and there’s plenty of shade along the route. Of course with an 8:00 a.m. start time, it doesn’t give the heat of the day much time to get going. It is a great way to start your day though.

Actually, it’s a great way for the whole family to start their day. We want this to be a family fun event and with everyone getting medals and a t-shirt, we think the whole family will have a blast.

The course starts at the historic Whalehead Club in Corolla, goes north to the 4WD gate where there is water and a turnaround, then back to the Whalehead Club.

Using well-marked multi-use paths, part of the Lighthouse 5K Corolla NC course is next to the heavily wooded Currituck Estuarine Reserve, which is a beautiful slice of Outer Banks maritime forest.

And when the race is done, in addition to the medal and t-shirt, there’s a post-race cold continental breakfast and refreshments at the Finish line. If you are really into health and wellness check out our best centers for a healthy lifestyle here on the Outer Banks!
