Athlete-Focused Events, Novice to Elite

5 Star Race Productions brings you a variety of top quality competitive athletic events in southeastern North Carolina with over 4,000 athletes running our races in 2014! We welcome all levels of athletes, novice to elite. 5 SRP is the proud company behind such races as the 17th annual Port City Orthopaedics Battleship Half Marathon & Battleship 5K (The Battleship Race! - Nov 8, 2015), the Plantation Building Corporation Half Marathon & Connected Home 5K (May 3, 2015), and other 15K, 10K's and 5K's on fun and challenging race courses in our area.  


We don't "shotgun" it with races weekend after weekend. We only put on events that are unique, challenging and fun for the participants; and each of our events benefits excellent local charities.


We added two new races in 2014: the Beethoven 15K & 5K and the Plantation Building Corporation Half Marathon & Connected Home 5K. Athletes loved the double loop PBC half marathon course with (2) out and back trips over a 1/3 mile long elevated boardwalk through a cool, picturesque nature area and around a small lake. We raised over $3,000 for the UNC Lineberger Cancer Center from this event. The Beethoven 15K & 5K was an awesome new middle distance event with 375 athletes participating allowing us to raise several thousand dollars for the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra.


Some of the other local non-profits we raise funds for are the Cape Fear Literacy Council, the Boyscouts of Wilmington, the Vietnam Veterans of America, the Marine Corps Toys for Tots and some UNCW organizations.
