Run Oak Island – February 17, 2024

Join us for the first race of the 2024 BAM! Race Series in Oak Island North Carolina! BAM is short for #BigAssMedals and our medals do not disappoint!

Oak Island is a beautiful coastal island large enough for a FULL MARATHON! We actually host 2 half marathons (East & West) that allow you to tour each end of the island. Highlights include: Lighthouse, 13+ miles of beach views along the ocean (running on the road), a bridge (on the West Half & Full Marathon) and much more! President’s Day weekend is a perfect long weekend to enjoy the beach. Average temperatures are 58 High /41 Low in February.

Start Times:

6:45AM – Full Marathon & Ultra Marathon Surprise Detour
6:45AM – East Half Marathon
7:00AM – West Half Marathon
7:30AM – 5K
8:30 – 1 Mile

Finisher Swag:

This year our finisher shirts will be going back to our extremely soft tri-blend T’s with a beautiful unique design and an absolutely stunning night time nautical themed race medal.  Over the years we’ve had  surfboard, flip flop, glass, lockets, artistic connecting medals, a pirate theme,  mosaic designs, and much more – we change it up each year to bring unique medals but this year might top them all. We hope you enjoy them!
