The Brunswick Family Assistance 10K, 5K & 1-mile Fun Run is held at Sea Trail Resort near Sunset Beach. The courses are flat and fast traveling through the pretty neighborhoods of the resort. Inside bathrooms are available and the awards ceremony will be held in a large clubhouse cabana with refreshments, prize drawings, and more. Nice shirts, 2-deep awards in 5-year age grops, and 3-deep in Overall winner categories. Strollers are welcomed. Dedicated 7:30 am 10K Walker start.
The 10K course is a loop course with a short out and back near the finish to get a very accurate 10K distance. The 5K course is an out and back. Both courses are flat and fast through picturesque residential areas with enough turns to keep it interesting. The 1-mile Fun Run is an out and back.
Awards and Prize Drawings
Awards are 2-deep M/F in 5 year age groups, with Overall M/F Winner categories going 3-deep. After the race there will be prize drawings drawn by race number for gift certificates from local running stores and other prizes from race sponsors. The prizes are always interesting and plentiful and are a highlight of the post race activities, as are the delicious local melons and 'lopes from Holden Brothers Farm Market! It's great post race refuel food.

3 RACE SERIES: The BFA 10K at Sea Trail is part of the 3-Race Series followed by the First Bank Oktoberfest 15K at Brunswick Forest on September 29th and the Carolina Sports Medicine Battleship Half Marathon on November 3rd. Athletes who do all three races (including Walkers) will recieve a prize package including items from us 5 Star Race Productions and our sponsors. Check out www.5starraceproductions.com for information about the series. The BFA 10K, 5K and 1-mile Fun Run at Sea Trail by itself will be an excellent event but adding the race to a 3-race series with each distance increasing seems like a great way to motivate runners to prepare for longer distances gradually and enjoy doing it, while receiving a nice prize package in the process.
