WILMINGTON, NC – Join Mr. Beethoven in a great distance event benefiting the Wilmington Symphony and its youth education programs on Sunday, January 25th, 9:00 am, at Brunswick Forest. The event offers 5K and 15K races, and 1K, 5K and 15K walks.
This is the perfect tune-up race for late winter and early spring marathons and half marathons. Individual and 4-person team entry categories are available. It features unique picturesque courses through beautiful Brunswick Forest, snazzy tee-shirts, customized 15K finisher medals, inside bathrooms and locker rooms, and a post-race party at the Fitness Center in the Leland Room with adult beverages, good food, vendors and exhibitors.
There is even a costume awards category for athletes wearing Beethoven wigs, carrying musical instruments, or just wearing the costume of your choice.
The goal is to strike a balance between athletes looking for a serious 15K or 5K race and those looking to have a fun day and enjoy the race and post race festivities with friends and fellow runners in the 15K or 5K. The race is a fundraiser for the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra and will be staffed by volunteers of the orchestra and residents of Brunswick Forest.
A variety of sponsorships are available, with levels from $100 to $3,000. For information about becoming a sponsor, or to register to run or walk either distance, please visit http://www.wilmingtonsymphony.org/beethoven-15k5k.html.
