Beach Run

Take a run or walk down the Beaufort waterfront for a good cause this month. For more than 35 years, runners, walkers and baby joggers have helped raise money for scholarships for high school seniors throughout Carteret County with the Historic Beaufort Road Race. Sponsored annually by the Beaufort Old Towne Rotary, this year's event is scheduled for Saturday, July 21 on Front Street.

The race includes 5K, 10K and 1-mile runs, 10K and 5K wheelchair, 5K baby jogger, 5K & 1-mile timed walks and the Sea Dog walk. The 10K and 5K courses are certified, with timing and results by East Carolina Road Racing. The start times are staggered, with the 1-mile run and walk departing at 7:30am.
