FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS
Register now for the 3rd Annual Run Oak Island and get away to beautiful Coastal North Carolina February 17th which will allow for a long 3 Day Presidents Weekend! This is the first race in the 2018 BAM Series (#BigAssMedals Series) located on the lower Brunswick County Islands. Come earn your first in a fantastic set of Big Ass Medals!
Parking is located around the start/finish line. For directions you can use the address: 4602 E. Dolphin Dr. Oak Island, NC 28465. Be sure to bring your pre-race hydration of choice and show up a little early – we recommend about 60 minutes prior to your start time however packet pickup and check-in opens at 5:00am.
Parking will be near the start/finish line. It is OK to park on the side of the road as long as all 4 tires are off of the road.
The full marathon starts at 6:30am, half marathon start at 7:00am and the 5K starts at 7:15 sharp so don’t be late. All of the events start and finish at the same place on Dolphin Dr. in front of Middleton Park. You want to make sure to give yourself plenty of time to get parked and warmed up.
Safety is our #1 priority. While we work with local authorities and DOT to shut down as many roads as possible, a portion of the course is open to vehicles so it’s important to be aware. We discourage headphones and no dogs are allowed per USATF sanctioning. Follow our directional signs, volunteers and law enforcement – they know the course and where you need to be running. Use every water stop to stay hydrated on the course and have fun, we’ll see you at the finish line!
Hang around a while. We’ll have the DJ playing your favorite tunes, post race food, beer and games – plus awards for top 3 overall male and female as well as age groups (every 5 years) for both the 5K and Half Marathon male and female runners. Bring a chair if you’d like, signs to cheer on others and enjoy the after party with us!
