DESCRIPTION

2014 will be the 2nd Annual Y Coastal Carolina Run Series presented by the Wilmington Family YMCA and is open to everyone! Can you go the distance?

This series has been put in place to inspire community health and involvement. The YMCA’s first goal is to encourage participants from the Girls on the Run and STRIDE programs, as well as their families, to continue a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living by completing additional 5k races outside of their program season. Our second goal is to encourage community members from all over our 5k service area to compete in our 5ks along the coast. Our final and LARGEST goal is to increase family involvement in a healthy way, by participating in our variety of 5ks in a fun, family competition!

In order to qualify, you must participate in two or more of the eight races that are included in the series. You are automatically entered into the series after your second race.

Races included in series:
Date: Saturday, April 12, 2014 - Location: Ocean Isle Beach, NC
Date: Saturday, May 10, 2014 - Location: Jacksonville, NC
Date: Saturday, May 17, 2014 - Location: Wilmington, NC
Date: Saturday, July 12, 2014 - Location: Wilmington, NC
Date: Saturday, November 22, 2014 - Location: Shallotte, NC
Date: Saturday, December 06, 2014 - Location: Jacksonville, NC
Date: Saturday, December 13, 2014 - Location: Wilmington, NC

Our series consists of seven 5ks, one 10k and a family obstacle course. The scoring system is designed to give motivation to all participants; therefore, participation is valued as well as speed and placement.

All eight events will be scored and added up. By running in more events, a runner will add points and has a chance to move up in final placement, even though a runner may not place in each individual race. If a participant runs more events they may out score a faster runner who has not participated in as many events.

Registration available soon!
