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 2015! As our motto says, "Athlete focused events, novice to elite."
We're the the proud company behind such races as the 18th annual Port City Orthopaedics Battleship Half Marathon, Battleship 10K & Outdoor Equipped 5K (The Battleship Race - Nov 6, 2016), the Beethoven 15K & 5K held at Brunswuck Forest on the last weekend in January for the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra, 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 have added two new races in 2016: Break the Silence on Ovarian Cencer 5K & 1-mile at St James Plantation in Southport, NC held on May 15th. We proudly helped raise over $30,000 for the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition through this race! Our other new event on June 11th is the ART MOVES Midtown 5K & Minnie's Mile at the Cameron Art Museum. This unique event has Finisher Medallions for all participants, local artisan producted award vessels and covers a beautiful course through Halyburton Park. All proceeds go to the CAM for their Art Reach program and other artistic endeavors.
Some of the local non-profits our events raise funds for is the Cape Fear Literacy Council, the Battleship Restoration Fund, Boyscouts of Wilmington, the Vietnam Veterans of America,Marine Corps Toys for Tots and several UNCW organizations.
