Mosquito Run 5K/10K Run or Walk

This 10K & 5K run/hike, held at Fort Macon State Park will benefit the Friends of Fort Macon. The 10K & 5K course at Fort Macon State Park is one of the most challenging courses in eastern North Carolina. The natural beauty of this course is unmatched. The course boardwalks cross natural wetlands and continues through an early growth maritime forest and thickets. It also wanders across pristine sand dunes. The 10K has the added challenge of running on the beach beside the Atlantic Ocean.

Registration is available online at RunTheEast.com, via mail, or on race day from 6:30-7:45 AM
