Welcome

The Oak Island Lighthouse Run & Walk began 16 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 Commerceorganize 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.

In 2006, The Oak Island Lighthouse Race under the leadership of Chairman Seth Robbins added the first 5k.  This was a popular addition especially for those that didn't want to tackle the G.V. Barbee Oak Island Bridge. 

In 2012, the phenomenal growth of the event led organizers to rethink the logistics of a point to point run and with the addition of the 1/2 marathon it was the perfect opportunity for route changes.  Beginning in 2012, all the runs began and ended at the N.C. Baptist Assembly @ Fort Caswell.

We strive to make this event safe, fun, and enjoyable for all fitness levels.  We hope you agree, the Oak Island Lighthouse 5k, 10k & 1/2 marathon courses showcase the best scenery on the North Carolina Coast .  What other course can you see salt marshes, the Atlantic Ocean, wide beautiful beaches, ruins of a historic fort, and have a Lighthouse as a cheerleader - beckoning you to the finish? We hope you will join us and have a great run on Saturday, April 12, 2014.   Yes, we are a week earlier in 2014 because the Easter holiday will fall on our normal date. 

This event is possible with the continued support and cooperation from the Wilmington Road Runners, N.C. Baptist Assembly @ Fort Caswell, Town of Oak Island, Town of Caswell Beach, Papa John's Pizza in Southport (910.454-0757), Art @ 211 The Ricky Evans Gallery and our very organized timing company GoTime Race Solutions.
