Registration is Now Open for the 4th Annual Beethoven 15K/5K to Benefit the Wilmington Symphony and its Youth Education Programs

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  November 7, 2016

WILMINGTON, NC Join Mr. Beethoven in a great distance event benefiting the Wilmington Symphony and its youth education programs on Sunday, January 22nd, 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 Apple Annie’s Back Shop, and State Farm Insurance – Josh London, Agent.  Additional sponsors include Margaret Hunter, cpa, p.a., and Planet Fitness.  A variety of sponsorships are still available, with levels from $100 to $3,000.  For information about becoming a sponsor, or to register to run or walk either distance, please visit http://www.wilmingtonsymphony.org/beethoven-15k5k.html.
