All registered Beach Dash participants will receive FREE entry into the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher on the day of the dash as well as other awesome promotions from local Carolina Beach and Kure Beach businesses.

Dash down the beach and experience over 8 obstacles with various blast stations throughout! The first 300 to register will receive a cool tie dyed t-shirt, glittery participant medal, and a pair of sweet sunglasses! The sand and obstacles makes this dash a unique challenge for even the veteran mud-runner, but with a fun, no-pressure atmosphere including color blast stations, optional obstacles, and no chip timing - this event is great for the whole family! Teams registering at the same time receive discounted rates!
