Wrightsville Beach Valentine 5K & 10K

What better way to start off your Valentine’s Day celebration than with a heart-themed race, that provides distances not often offered in the area, as well as spectacular views! The 5K race utilizes the Loop, N Channel & Coral Drive. The 10K heads east on Salisbury St. to the most eastern Pelican Dr. cross-over, where athletes run west on Pelican Dr toward the drawbridge.

The 10K route then continues underneath the drawbridge, meandering through business and residential areas to Causeway Dr, and then east onto Waynick Blvd. Runners will then travel south on Waynick Blvd. until they reach the halfway turn around, and reverse the route back to the park while enjoying the beautiful waterway views along the way. The Double Trouble event runs BOTH races! Wear your red, white, and pink and bring your Valentine to Wrightsville Beach!

Proceeds from the Valentine Run will benefit the Wrightsville Beach Parks & Recreation Department, which supports the various programs, activities, and events offered to the community throughout the year!
