Important Details

Race Description

Due to Hurricane Matthew, the ILM Airport has made the difficult decision to cancel the event. We are very sorry but safety is our priority and all available resources will need to be prepared for the coming storm. There will not be a rain/make up date or refunds processed given the timing of the hurricane and the money raised having already been used for race supplies.

We will be mailing out shirts to all the pre-registered participants as well as Finisher Pint Glasses. You will receive these next week. We will also be donating any remaining funds after already incurred expenses (shirts, awards, venue, etc) to the Susan G Komen North Carolina Triangle to the Coast.
