"One of The Best 5K Races In North Carolina!"

Brought to you by the Uwharrie Running Club


Top Ten Reasons To Run The  9th Annual Beach Blast 5K  

10)  Beach Blast 5K is a great race to run for the entire family. Above, Jeremy Shaver runs with both of his children.

9)  Cool Runner Dude With Surf Board Logo on t-shirts.

8)  Top Three Men and Top Three Women finishers get a carved Uwharrie Slate Rock. (Renee Asciutto is the Artist.  She carves the Beach Blast logo into the Slate Rock.)  

7)  Top Five Male and Female Finishers get a Beach Blast 5K Top Five Finisher T-Shirt  

6)  Awesome Goodie Bags . This year's goody bag should be the best ever.  I'd tell what's going in the bags, but it would ruin the surprise.  

5) Great post-race food, including custom 5K Sugar Cookies baked at The Sweet Shop  

4)  Weekly Prizes will be given to pre-registered runners to preregistered runners beginning March 15th.

3) Bring canned or non-perishable dry food and earn a chance to win a$50.00 Gift Certificate donated by Vac & Dash.

Canned food drive is to benefit the Stanly County Christian Ministries  

2) The Beach Blast 5K offers a net elevation drop with a fast downhill finish.

1) It's a Fun, Fantastic Race!
