The 4th Annual Sports Center Chum Run, is the first event of its kind on the Crystal Coast. It is a 5k obstacle course that will take place at Camp Albemarle. There will be approximately 20-25 obstacles of all types including an open water swim that will challenge participant’s strength and endurance. This year we will be having a Little Chummers Run for ages 6-12 years old to make this a fun and family-friendly event. Participants will swim, jog, crawl, climb, slide and jump their way to the finish line where fans, refreshments and showers will be waiting.
This year’s race will be held at Camp Albemarle (in Newport, NC).
There will be multiple heats for participants of different ages and ability levels. A timing system will be provided for a select number of heats but the object is to have fun and complete the event, not to finish first.
Must be 13 years of age to participate in main event. Little Chummers race open to ages 6-12.
Participants can choose whether to complete both the run and the swim, or just the run. Participants must complete both the run and swim to be eligible for awards.

You asked, Chum Run delivered. Many participants asked for a more competitive feel to the Chum Run. This year we have included an elite heat as part of the registration process. Those that chose can compete in a first to the finish competition where prizes will be awarded to the top female and top male athletes. During this heat there will be strict enforcement of obstacle rules. There are limited spaces available for the elite heat and they will be treated on a first come, first serve basis.
