Enjoy a little active fun in the sun while exploring some of the coolest and most scenic corners of the northern Outer Banks with this special running event that’s held on Wednesdays in the heart of Corolla. The Lighthouse 5K is a friendly race that’s open to visitors and locals alike, and which follows a wonderful route that loops around an array of local Corolla landmarks. The race starts at the Whalehead Club in the heart of town, and bypasses the Currituck Beach Lighthouse, the Historic Currituck Park, and even the Currituck Sound in a winding path throughout the coastal community.
Registration never closes, and visitors throughout the summertime can sign up for the race online for the upcoming date that coincides with their Corolla vacation. All participants will receive a free T-shirt, a medal, and all professional services including timing. Walkers, joggers, and strollers are all welcome, and the proceeds from each event helps to assist a number of local charities. All in all, the weekly Lighthouse 5K is a great way for active vacationers to enjoy a little fun off the beach, while embarking on a lightly competitive run or jog through this scenic, historic, and popular beach vacation destination.
