The inaugural Surf to Sound 5K is the perfect way to celebrate the Topsail Island community and all the small businesses that make up the area.
Lace up your running/walking shoes and join the community for a great fundraiser on Saturday September 25. Whether you are an experienced runner, an occasional jogger or a walker looking forward to foot-crossing the Surf City Bridge, the inaugural Surf to Sound 5K is the perfect way to celebrate the Topsail Island community and all the small businesses that make up the area. All sponsorships and proceeds from the race will benefit Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center.
With an 8 am start at Soundside Park, 517 Roland Avenue, Surf City, the 3.1-mile trek will offer beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean as well as the lovely Intercoastal Waterway. James Worsham, the race’s founder, is an avid runner and four-time marathoner who wants to give back to the Surf City community as well as raise awareness for the Turtle Hospital.
He hopes to bring folks together from the eastern part of North Carolina and throughout the state to run, walk and simply enjoy the Surf City community and bridge. If you are unable to attend in person, the race also offers a virtual run/walk. Check out the Surf to Sound 5K website at runsignup.com/Race/NC/SurfCity/SurftoSound5K or find info on Facebook.
