PCJ’s 5k Race for Preservation – Wilmington’s ‘Original’ Urban 5K

The Historic Wilmington Foundation holds its urban 5K Run & Mile Walk for Preservation annually on a Thursday night in September. The 2014 race will be on September 11th at 6:30PM.  The 5K Run & Mile Walk will begin and end at the Best Western Plus Coastline Inn (501 Nutt Street) in historic downtown Wilmington.

The 5K run and walk are open to individuals and teams of all ages and fitness levels. Race registration includes a post-race awards ceremony and a great party with music, food and beer. Early entries will receive a race t-shirt.

The purpose of the 5K Run for Preservation is to generate community exposure for the Historic Wilmington Foundation and to increase our corporate and individual membership. Proceeds support our mission to protect and preserve the irreplaceable resources in Wilmington and the Lower Cape Fear region.
