About the Race


Blue Clay Breakout is a locally owned and operated race that started out of an idea and a love for running trails. The run is 6 miles through a perfect mixture of beautiful pine forest and well-maintained trails.  The Blue Clay course is a great mixture of what our area offers in trail running.  Fast flowing start, challenging rooty section and some nice challenging switchbacks and hills for the back half of the course.  It provides an awesome experience with a challenge to break out of your comfort zone.  Very convenient from all areas in Wilmington and the surrounding areas. Some of the area’s best trails and everything that you love about trail running.

About the Course

Blue Clay trails offer a mixture of nice and flowing packed dirt sections, with rooty sections for the added challenge. The back half of the course offers hills with some nice flowy switchbacks and fast downhill sections.  Lots of nice bridge crossings for an added quickness.  Blue Clay Trails are challenging and fun at the same time with some punchy uphill’s and some fast-smooth sections.  This well-maintained trail system is taken care of by the Cape Fear SORBA and are in great shape for a fun day of trail running.
