A message and briefing for all spectators.

All roads will have lane closures for the race.  1 road will be closed which is Salisbury Street on Wrightsville Beach.  That is between miles 0-1, 11.5-12 and 15.5 to 16.5.  You can still get off WB Island via Causeway Dr.

With that being said, all roads will be open for transportation but there will be delays in 3 major spots (highlighted in the viewing map below).  These are locations where runners cross the major roads.  If you want to see your athlete finish, you need to make plans on how you plant to get to the finish from the course.  See the map below on Getting from START TO FINISH. The safest place to park would be around St. Marks Catholic Church.  You can see alot of the race if you are willing to bring bikes or walk from this location.  Please be cautions crossing any major roads.  You can see the map below on some other areas that you can view the race with ample parking.

Wilmington (New Hanover County) is a peninsula so there are not a lot of routes to get to and from the beach.  Please plan ahead.
