Events for Runners, Riders, Racers and Anglers

Wrightsville Beach is a hub for sporting events, drawing people to the island from all over the world. Experience Wilmington, NC Marathon Madness with a top race qualifier for the Boston Marathon as you run from Johnnie Mercer Pier in Wrightsville Beach to downtown Wilmington, or participate in an IRONMAN event with beach-to-battleship scenery along the way. Riders can join in on a fat tire bike race along the ocean’s edge and fishermen get competitive in tournaments during seasonal fishing events.

Take a vacation and test your skills in one of many sporting events held at Wrightsville Beach.
