Beautiful scenery, flat terrain, lots of interconnecting multi-use trails. . . . it would be hard to picture a better location for runners than the Outer Banks—as more and more runners have discovered.

Here at Brindley Beach we understand that—heck, a lot of us are runners ourselves, so we’ve partnered with Runcations, a local group that specializes in organizing running events and for the third year we’re sponsoring the Lighthouse 5K Series. 

Every Wednesday starting July 9th through August 20th, lace up your running shoes and meet us at the Whalehead Club in Corolla to start your day with a run through Currituck Heritage Park at the foot of the Currituck Beach Lighthouse.

This run is really designed for the whole family and sometimes we have up to 500 runners starting their day with us. Mike Mazza from Shore Chef provides breakfast after the event and everyone gets a T-shirt and a finisher’s medal.

The course is flat, the setting is beautiful and race time is 8:00 a.m. so the summer heat has not set in yet. 

We’ve had a lot of fun with this over the past few years, we think this is a great way for your whole family to start the day and we would love to have you out there running with us.
