Survival Run

Carolina Beach State Park

January 2020 @ 8:00 AM  ( **2021 Date TBD**)


The WRRC Survival Run is a FREE adventure trail event open to club members only (not a member yet? become one here or renew here)

We meet at 7:45 for an 8:00am start at Carolina Beach State Park visitor's center.

You will be rewarded at the finish with a catered A & G hot breakfast: eggs, bacon, sausage, grits, pancakes, coffee AND their famous 'nana puddin'!  Because of our great relationship with Carolina Beach State Park, they invite us to dine inside the warm confides of their visitor center....right next to the stuffed opossums.  There are usually two courses:  short ( 5 ish)  and long (10 ish).  Distances vary from year to year depending on course conditions. This year there will also be a "On-the-road" contingent for those who are tentative about running on trails.

Please register by  (TBD) so we may know how many are participating and how many for breakfast.

Things to know:

  • Course will only be roughly marked. Follow other runners at your risk, they may be lost too!
  • Run with a buddy.  It is always more fun to be lost in the woods with a friend.
  • Don't get lost for too long.  
  • Course may be rugged (it's not Bad Water or the Barkley Marathons, so no worries).
  • Sign up early.  We are limited on the number of runners allowed in the park.

The Survival Run has been a club tradition for a long time.  We have not permanently lost a runner...YET.  All come out of the woods......eventually.
