The race starts and finishes on the Morehead City Waterfront and makes a loop past the neighborhoods and businesses of Downtown Morehead City. After passing the gift shops and charter fishing boats, runners cross the bridge to Atlantic Beach. This part of the race offers a beautiful view of the sound and the Atlantic Ocean in the distance.
Once in Atlantic Beach, the course turns towards historic Ft. Macon, then reverses and will again cross the Causeway Bridge back to Morehead City. Once back in Morehead City, the course again travels through coast residential neighborhoods.
Other than the bridge to Atlantic Beach, this course is a flat out-and-back route which has had many runners set personal bests. The 5K is a loop in Morehead City and has become a favorite for many runners.
