The Oak Island Lighthouse 10k offers runners and walkers a challenging course with unique and breathtaking views. The 10k event will begin and end at the Middleton Park Extension on Oak Island. You will find it difficult to match the view of the Atlantic Ocean and coastal marshlands.
The 10k course visually delights participants beginning at Middleton Park Extension where you will be cheered on by the sounds of seagulls and ocean waves lapping our beautiful beaches. The route continues north on Dolphin Drive to 6th Place East turning around and making a quick turn onto 9th Place East where you will cross the first of two walkways across the Davis Canal.
Look for the Oak Island Police Officer who will make sure you safely cross Oak Island Drive and continue down 9th Street to Yacht Drive. Enjoy the views of the Intracoastal Waterway until you reach 31st Street, where you will turn right and follow 31st Street across Oak Island Drive to the second of the walkways and the only “hill” on the course.
Back on the beachside of Oak Island, take 29th Place East to Dolphin Drive. Turn left onto Dolphin Drive which will take you down the homestretch to the Start/Finish Line.
