oak island races

One of the best parts of racing are the amazing scenery that many courses offer. It’s hard to beat the beautiful coastal views of the Oak Island Lighthouse Run. The half marathon is part of the 2016 Coastal Carolina Half Marathon Challenge, including three half marathons on the beautiful NC coast.


The Oak Island Lighthouse Run & Walk began 16 years ago when Clarence Willie, a Chamber Board member, avid runner and retired U.S. Marine Lieutenant Colonel suggested the Southport-Oak Island Area Chamber of Commerce organize a 10k run/walk. The Chamber Board appointed Clarence Willie the Chair and with great enthusiasm the first run was held on April 10,1999.

We strive to make this event safe, fun, and enjoyable for all fitness levels. We hope you agree, the Oak Island Lighthouse 1/2 marathon, 10 K and 5 K courses showcase the best scenery on the North Carolina Coast.

What other course can you see salt marshes, the Atlantic Ocean, wide beautiful beaches, ruins of a historic fort, and have a Lighthouse as a cheerleader – beckoning you to the finish?
