FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Coastal Race Productions, your locally owned and operated Event Production Company presents: The Freedom 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run in Shallotte, NC on July 2nd in celebration of our Nations Day of Independence. The 5K starts and finishes in Mulberry Park and the course is USATF certified. The 1 mile will be 100% in the park, making it a fun and safe option for all ages! Mulberry Park is located at 123 Mulberry St, Shallotte.
Coastal Race Productions is well known up and down the coast for their great race swag and this race will be no exception. Both the 5K and 1Mile finishers will receive a medal as they cross the finish line and of course receive a super soft t-shirt race morning when they pick up their race bib. Bib pick-up will begin at 5:30am in Mulberry Park and go until 6:45am as the 5K starts promptly at 7:00 and as soon as the 5K runners are all out of the park we will start the 1 Mile Fun Run which includes 3 loops all in the park.
While Coastal Race is in their ninth year of operations, this is only the second year for this family friendly fun 4th of July themed race. Last year there were right at 400 runners who participated in the event representing 20 different states with the largest group being from the Carolinas. They are expecting 500+ participants this year and are still currently looking for Race Day Volunteers. Coastal Race continues to give back to the community through their Volunteer For Donation program and if you would like anymore information please visit the official Coastal Race Volunteer page. Volunteers are a huge piece of the Coastal Race team and this local company is always looking for ways to connect and celebrate with local non-profits and community groups.
Registration is currently open, however they anticipate the race selling out this year so if you are considering participating don’t wait too long to register! Be sure to dress in your Red, White and Blues and let’s show that no matter what else is going on in the World today – United We Run!
