Wilmington Symphony Hosts 5th Annual Beethoven 15K/5K at Brunswick Forest


WILMINGTON, NCJoin Mr. Beethoven in a great distance event benefiting the Wilmington Symphony and its youth education programs on Sunday, January 28th, 9:00 am, at Brunswick Forest.  The event offers a 15K run, and 5K run or walk.

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.

Title sponsors for the event are State Farm Insurance (Josh London, Agent), and Margaret Hunter (CPA, PA).  Additional sponsors include Five Star Race Productions, Apple Annie’s Bake Shop, Hampton Inn – Medical Park, Brunswick Forest, Omega Sports, Catlin Engineers & Scientists, Planet Fitness, Fleet Feet Sports, Strick’s LP Gas, and Rexroad Loweth Wealth Management.
