Middleton Park Extension
The Oak Island Lighthouse 1/2 marathon offers runners a challenging course with unique and breathtaking views. Runners will be rewarded with views of the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway & marshlands and get a break from the sun under a canopy of Live Oak and Long Leaf Pinetrees. The 1/2 marathon will begin and end at Middleton Park Extension, Oak Island.
Originally the Oak Island Lighthouse Race was only a 10k.
In 2006, The Oak Island Lighthouse Race under the leadership of Chairman Seth Robbins added the first 5k. This was a popular addition especially for those that didn't want to tackle the G.V. Barbee Oak Island Bridge.
In 2012, the phenomenal growth of the event led organizers to rethink the logistics of a point to point run and with the addition of the 1/2 marathon it was the perfect opportunity for route changes. Beginning in 2012, all the runs began and ended at the N.C. Baptist Assembly @ Fort Caswell.
