We have so many great events around the south brunswick islands and one that is coming up is called “Run Ocean Isle Beach” on October 3rd, 2015. This race consists of a half marathon, 5K and 1 mile “Doggie Dash” road race right on the island starting next to Pelican’s Perch on E. 2nd Street. This is a great family friendly event with a fun after party including games, food and awards. Run OIB is also part of a series of runs where the finisher medals (everyone receives) connect by magnets to make the worlds largest race medal if you participated in Run Sunset Beach and Run Holden Beach.
A portion of the proceeds also benefit a local non-profit; Paws-A-Bility, which promotes responsible pet ownership and aids in animal welfare.
This race is managed by Coastal Race Productions that puts on several races throughout the year including: Run Sunset Beach (5/16), Brunswick Family Assistance Race through Seatrail (8/22), Run Holden Beach (9/12), Run Ocean Isle Beach (10/3), Oyster Festival Road Race (10/18), Calabash Turkey Trot (11/26) & Day 1 Run (1/1/16).
