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 welcome all levels of athletes, novice to elite. 5 SRP is the proud company behind such races as the 17th annual Port City Orthopaedics Battleship Half Marathon & Battleship 5K (The Battleship Race! - Nov 8, 2015), the Brunswick Forest Half Marathon & Connected Home 5K (The first week in May), 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 held in early August. Race HQ is the Wilmington Athletic Club. It was great to be at the WAC's awesome facility and the Summer Sizzler "Bake at the Lake" had 274 fine summer time runners and the event raised several hundred dollars for NHRMC's Pink Ribbon Project. We'll be back for 3 more years at the WAC with the Summer Sizzler!
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.
