1st Annual How Far To The Bar Halloween 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run

How Far to the bar is working to save the NC inlets. We grew up here in Carolina Beach and love our beaches so we knew we wanted to do something to help save them. So this year we are throwing our very first race and helping to protect what is so precious to us! So we are running for a great cause – Saving our Inlets! Run from bar to bar in  your Halloween Costume under a Full Moon! Description of Race: Under a FULL MOON on Saturday, October 27 - get dressed in your fastest and most decorative Halloween costume and run for the BAR! Run Canal Drive as you view the waterway and hear the fans cheering you on. At the halfway point is a BAR if you need a refreshment! Then once you're refreshed, race back to the finish and end your run at another BAR (Sea Witch )! Our goal, of course, is to keep you well hydrated! Walkers will have the pleasure of going the opposite direction towards the Boardwalk in case you need a few more watering holes on your journey. Beware - the sunsets at 5:58pm that evening and its a FULL MOON! Help us  "Save the NC Inlets"
