Oak Island Lighthouse Run Adds 1/2 Marathon

Oak Island Lighthouse RunFebruary 18, 2012 - Oak Island, NC - The inaugural Oak Island Lighthouse Run began in 1999 as a 10k run/walk as a way to showcase our beautiful beaches and history while promoting a healthy lifestyle. In 2006, a 5k was added to attract even more participation. As the event continued to grow, there were many requests for the event to add a 1/2 marathon. In response, the Southport-Oak Island Area Chamber of Commerce, organizers of the Oak Island Lighthouse Run will add a 1/2 marathon to the April 21st event. The addition of the 1/2 marathon also gave organizers the opportunity to revamp the existing run/walk. All runs will now begin and end at the N.C. Baptist Assembly @ Fort Caswell. The changes to the Oak Island Lighthouse Run are designed to eliminate logistical challenges with the growth of the event and to alleviate traffic congestion created by past closings of the G.V. Barbee Bridge.
