2019 Blue Clay Breakout Results

Blue Clay Breakout is a locally owned and operated race that started out of an idea and a love for running trails. The run is 6 miles through a perfect mixture of beautiful pine forest and well-maintained trails.  The Blue Clay course is a great mixture of what our area offers in trail running.  It provides an awesome experience with a challenge to break out of your comfort zone. Convenient from all areas in Wilmington and the surrounding areas.

Jail Break Team Race: You’re on the run with your “cellmate”! Both team mates will be required to put their shoes in a group pile.  Athletes will then start the race from a different location.  Cellmates will be “tethered” together and run to the pile of shoes (soft surface).  You will have to find your shoes and start the run (about 1.5 miles).  Teams are required to stay together (tethered) – just like if you were really on the run, you are only as strong as your weakest link. This is a fun addition to the 6 mile option!

Blue Clay trails offer a mixture of nice and flowing packed dirt sections, with rooty sections for the added challenge. The back half of the course offers hills with some nice flowy switchbacks and fast downhill sections.  Lots of nice bridge crossings for an added quickness.  These trails are challenging and fun at the same time with some punchy uphill’s and some fast-smooth sections.  This well-maintained trail system is taken care of by the Cape Fear SORBA and are in great shape for a fun day of trail running.

Due to the nature of this race course, strollers, wheelchairs and dogs are NOT permitted to participate.
