Athlete-Focused Events, Novice to Elite

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 2017! As our motto says, "Athlete focused events, novice to elite."


We're the the proud company behind such races as the 20th annual Battleship Half Marathon, Battleship 10K & Outdoor Equipped 5K (The Battleship Race - Nov 4, 2018), the Beethoven 15K & 5K held at Brunswuck Forest (January 28, 2018) for the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra, and other 15K, 10K's and 5K's on fun and unique 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.


In 2016 we presented a one-time event at St James Plantation - Break the Silence on Ovarian Cencer 5K & 1-mile near Southport, NC. We proudly helped raise over $30,000 for the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition through this race! In 2018 we'll be producing a new race "The Midtown Meetup 10K & 5K" in the up and coming midtown area of Wilmington. The race courses will be semi-urban, fun and challenging. 


Some of the local non-profits our races benefit are the Cape Fear Literacy Council, the Battleship Restoration Fund, Boyscouts and Girlscouts of Wilmington, the Vietnam Veterans of America, Marine Corps Toys for Tots and several UNCW organizations. In total, we have raised over $300,000 for local quality non-profits!
