The race begins on West 3rd Street in Ocean Isle Beach, and takes runners on an out-and-back course that crosses the Odell Williamson Bridge over the intracoastal waterway twice, once over to the mainland and then back again over to Ocean Isle Beach. The bridge portion of the race route offers by far its biggest uphill and downhill stretch; the remainder of the race’s 13.1 miles feature largely fast and flat paved roads through the Ocean Isle Beach area.
