5 Star Race Productions brings you a variety of top quality competitive athletic events in southeastern North Carolina with over 4,000 athletes running our races in 2015! We're the the proud company behind such races as the 18th annual Port City Orthopaedics Battleship Half Marathon & Battleship 5K (The Battleship Race - Nov 6, 2016), the Brunswick Forest 10-miler & Connected Home 5K (May 1, 2016), and other 15K, 10K's and 5K's on fun and challenging race courses in our area.
We don't "shotgun" it with races weekend after weekend. We only put on events that are unique, challenging and fun for the participants; and each of our events benefits excellent local charities.
We added one new event in 2015: The Summer Sizzler 10K, 5K & 1-mile fun run. Race HQ is the Wilmington Athletic Club at the WAC's awesome facility near Greenfield Lake. The Summer Sizzler "Bake at the Lake" had 274 summer time runners and culminated with a pool party at the WAC wtih good food, beer and free massages. Race date is August 7, 2016..
Some of the local non-profits our events raise funds for is the Cape Fear Literacy Council, the Boyscouts of Wilmington, the Vietnam Veterans of America, the Marine Corps Toys for Tots and some UNCW organizations.
