2018 WB Valentine Run Results

What better way to start off your Valentine’s Day celebration than with a heart themed race! You will be able to choose which distance you would like to run, either a 5K, 10K, or the new Double Trouble 15K where you run the 5K and then the 10K.  The 10K starts one hour after the 5K.  Races run through the beautiful Wrightsville Beach. So, wear your red, white, and pink and bring your Valentine for the Wrightsville Beach!

The Wrightsville Beach Valentine Run offers two courses.  The 5K course takes runners from Wrightsville Beach Park around the infamous Loop.  The 10K course takes runners from Wrightsville Beach Park, circles underneath the Wrightsville Beach drawbridge and over the Causeway to the magnificent view of Banks Channel along Waynick Boulevard where you’ll reach the halfway point and return to Wrightsville Beach Park.  And, if you choose the Double Trouble 15K challenge, you’ll get to run both courses!
