River To The Sea

A Wilmington Road Runner Only Event

Mark Your Calendars for February 26, 2017

The River to the Sea adventure run is a unique event that tests your ability to navigate the shortest (or most fun) route from Downtown Wilmington to Wrightsville Beach, ending at Cafe Del Mar in Tower 7.  Secret clues given out the morning of the run will guide you from checkpoint to checkpoint so the best course will change from year to year.  Approximate distance of the race is 10-12 miles.

  • No set course for this run
  • Put together your team or grab a partner to help figure out the riddle location for the next checkpoint
  • Discover new areas of Wilmington navigating your shortest path
  • Prizes, snacks, and drinks will be waiting at the finish (coffee can be purchased on your own at Cafe Del Mar))

The River River to the Sea adventure run starts in downtown Wilmington in front of the Hilton Riverside.  This event is open only to members of the Wilmington Road Runners Club.  The only other requirement for this race is that you bring a smile and prepare to have fun.

The history of this race dates back over 15 years and was started as a tribute to Jim Rich by his friends.  Jim lost his battle to cancer and we remember all love ones we have lost with a moment of silence just prior to the start of the run.  You will receive your first clue in the form of a riddle to get you to your next checkpoint. A minimum of 3 checkpoints will be on the course but is always subject to change.  This keeps the race fresh from year to year!

The race will cover a course from 10-12 miles (depending on who you follow) and will end at Cafe Del Mar at Wrightsville Beach.  Prizes and raffles will be given out to runners of all paces; sometimes it pays to be last.  See you there!!!!
