PCJ presents Historic Wilmington Foundation’s 5k  Race for Preservation Wilmington’s Original Downtown 5K

Historic Wilmington Foundation’s Race for Preservation is Wilmington’s downtown original 5k.  It features a 5k run and 1 mile walk along the river front.

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.  Race t-shirts and thousands of dollars in prizes are awarded.

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 historic resources in Wilmington and the Lower Cape Fear region.

Our race for 2015 was held on September 10.  Race registration for 2016 will open up in the summer.
