Kayak for the Warriors™ is an annual fundraising event for HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS® to benefit our brave, combat injured and fallen service men and women and their families, sponsored by the Town of Pine Knoll Shores, NC.

We kick off our Kayak for the Warrior activities by hosting a 5K Beach Run and 1K Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, May 25, 2019. This run will be electronically timed by Run the East, a professional race timing service of North Carolina. For more race timing info please see www.runtheeast.com. The event fee for the 5K is $25 includes a t-shirt. The Fun Run/Walk fee is $15. T-shirts for fun walkers/runners will be available for purchase for an additional $10. The Fun Walk/Run will head down the beach towards Indian Beach and return on the same route. All runners will line up with the elite runners in front, casual runners next, and walkers following. All runners start will be at 8:00 a.m.

The race course for the 5K will begin on the beach near the Inn at Pine Knoll Shores and proceed west towards Indian Beach. Both races will remain on the beach.  Run times will be posted on this site just as we do with the Kayak race with special note to the top three finishers in several age and gender groups.

There is parking at the common beach access parking across the street from the Inn at Pine Knoll Shores, the Beacon’s Reach Management Association parking lot, and behind the Beacon’s Reach Management office in the landscape field (both off of 58).  Two porta potties will be located at the Inn at Pine Knoll Shores next to common beach access.
