A Race for the Cure 5K is being held from 8 a.m. to noon on March 2 in downtown Wilmington, NC. The Race for the Cure 5K raises money for the Susan G Koman Foundation. The race will take place in Downtown Wilmington at 2nd and Market Streets.

Get into the St. Patrick’s Day Spirit on March 16, 2013 at the Lucky Leprechaun 5k beginning at The Winds Resort! Wear Green and show your Leprechaun Spirit! The course is flat, fast and beautiful as it parallels the ocean along the east side of the island. Hundreds will come out to participate in the race along 1st and 2nd Streets on Ocean Isle. The crowd is usually a festive bunch, dressed in all shades of green with St. Patty’s Day flair. The race begins at 9am. There are several different race categories and many winners; the overall best time wins a free 2-day stay at The Winds. After the race, participants staying at The Winds are treated to a hamburger and hotdog lunch complete with all the fixings!
