What better way to ring in the new year than by racing or cheering on the Carolina Beach State Park Half Marathon & 5K , a timed trail race with 13.1 and 3.1 mile courses, for runners of all levels of speed and ability racing along a rolling pine laced single track with water views. Participants have interesting terrain to take-in while they run for unique prizes. Check the website for a drone video and satellite map of the excellent running conditions.
