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 4,500 athletes running our races in 2017! As our motto says, "Athlete focused events, novice to elite."


We're the the proud company behind such races as the 20th annual Battleship Half Marathon, 10K & Outdoor Equipped 5K "The Battleship Race" - Nov 4, 2018, the Beethoven 15K & 5K (January 28, 2018) presented for the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra, and other 15K, 10K's and 5K's on fun and unique 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.


This will be the 20th year for the Battleship Half Marathon, 10K & Outdoor Equipped 5K and we are going all out in everything for the event. If you've never done that Battleship Race you should do it this year. It's going to be incredible. 


Some of the local non-profits our races benefit are the Cape Fear Literacy Council, the Battleship Restoration Fund, Boyscouts and Girlscouts of Wilmington, the Vietnam Veterans of America, Marine Corps Toys for Tots and several UNCW organizations. In total, we have raised over $300,000 for local quality non-profits!
