Wrightsville Beach
Marathon 5K

Saturday, March 21, 2015
Start time 5:00PM
Mayfaire Town Center Event Field, Wilmington NC

The Quintiles Wrightsville Beach 5K is a Saturday evening event, starting and finishing at the Marathon and Half Marathon finish line. Past runners (veterans and beginners) consistently share how positive of an experience this particular 5K is. When you look around on race day, you’ll see children under 10, seniors over 70, parents with strollers…and you’ll quickly realize that everyone is there for one common goal. When you see the finish line, you’ll dig deep and give it everything you have. No matter how you feel.

Push yourself, be proud, and enjoy every moment. We’ll see you on race day!
