About This Activity

Run the oldest 3-bridge 10K on the east coast! All finishers this year will receive commemorative 35th anniversary finisher medal!

This event benefits the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA which is a 12 week health and wellness program designed for cancer survivors that is free and open to the community.

The course has a slightly different start than past years. Start and finish will be at the CFCC Nutt Street Parking area (intersection of Nutt, Water and Red Cross).

The 10k course runs over the Memorial Bridge and across two more bridges before finishing on Water Street with a 1/3 mile flat and fast run to the finish! You'll also have a short loop down Battleship Road where you'll run in front of the Battleship USS North Carolina and take in the view of downtown Wilmington across the Cape Fear River - very picturesque. There will be extensive coning on the race course so you'll run safe and fast over the bridges.You know it’s going to be HOT so take the challenge with the humidity, heat, and hills of Wilmington! The 5K course travels through the downtown area and has some slight rolling hills and a couple of short, steep grades.

Wheel chair pushing athletes and athletes of ALL ABILITIES are welcome!!
