The 21st Annual Oak Island Lighthouse Run / Walk offers half marathon runners a challenging course with unique and breathtaking views including the Oak Island Lighthouse. Runners will be rewarded with views of the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway and marshlands and get a break from the sun under a canopy of Live Oak and Long Leaf Pine trees. The 5k and 10k run / walk courses also have visual delights; where else will you be cheered on by the sounds of seagulls and ocean waves lapping our beautiful beaches? The one-mile fun run encourages a healthy lifestyle in the next generation of runners. You will find it difficult to match the view of the Atlantic Ocean and coastal marshlands of this event. Throw in the Chalk Art at the Start, great medals, Ricky Evans Artist prints for awards in numerous age categories, Pelican Sno Balls and Check Six Beer for participants – this is a destination run worthy event.
