We kick off our Kayak for the Warrior activities by hosting a 5K Beach Run and 1K Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, May 27. This run will be electronically timed by Run the East, a professional race timing service of North Carolina. For more race timing info please see www.runtheeast.com. The event fee for the 5K is $25 includes a t-shirt. The Fun Run/Walk fee is $15. T-shirts for fun walkers/runners will be available for purchase for an additional $10. The Fun Walk/Run will head down the beach towards Indian Beach and return on the same route. All runners will line up with the elite runners in front, casual runners next, and walkers following. All runners start will be at 8:00 a.m.
The race course for the 5K will begin on the beach and proceed west towards Indian Beach and then loop over the dunes, across Hwy 58 and then over the knolls of Beacon’s Reach and then back across 58 and onto the beach again. Run times will be posted on this site just as we do with the Kayak race with special note to the top three finishers in several age and gender groups.
The age and gender groups are as follows:
Females 15 and Under
Females 16 – 65
Male 15 and Under
Males 16 -65
There is parking at the common beach access parking across the street from the Inn at Pine Knoll Shores, the Beacon’s Reach Management Association parking lot, and behind the Beacon’s Reach Management office in the landscape field (both off of 58). Two porta potties will be located at the Inn at Pine Knoll Shores next to common beach access.
