Due to circumstances beyond our control the 2022 OKI Lighthouse Run will not be held this spring as originally planned.
Now the good news – plans are already underway for a new race to be held this summer to give you a unique and fun experience on the island. We expect this one to consist of a 5k, 10k and a one-mile fun run. Stay tuned for announcements with more details coming soon!
The Oak Island Lighthouse Run & Walk began 20 years ago when Clarence Willie, a Chamber Board member, avid runner and retired U.S. Marine Lieutenant Colonel suggested the Southport-Oak Island Area Chamber of Commerce organize a 10k run/walk. The Chamber Board appointed Clarence Willie the Chair and with great enthusiasm the first run was held on April 10,1999.
We strive to make this event safe, fun, and enjoyable for all fitness levels. We hope you agree, the Oak Island Lighthouse 1/2 marathon, 10 K and 5 K courses showcase the best scenery on the North Carolina Coast.
What other course can you see salt marshes, the Atlantic Ocean, wide beautiful beaches, and have a Lighthouse as a cheerleader?
