Liam Strong Charity Beach Run

Sun September 22, 2024 Wrightsville Beach, NC 28480 US Directions

Fun to 5K Training Program

We are offering a new training program for this year's Liam Strong race as another way to honor Liam! 
This program is open anyone who has registered for this year's Liam Strong Race and anyone who registers during the training program! 

What is it?
An 8-week training program to get you ready for this year's 5k...or, even just our fun run! Receive training plans and run miles in Liam's honor before official race day! 

Have you ever wanted to have training plans at your fingertips, learn tips and tricks to run more efficiently, or just share all the miles you currently run with others? By signing up, you will receive weekly training emails from our Social Media Director, Quinn Sosne, who has run 2 marathons and countless half-marathons, 10K's and 5K's! 
What Do I Need to Do?
Participants would be asked to share weekly pictures of their training which could be a selfie, a picture of mileage covered, or a photo of where they are running! You can send photos to us directly via social media, email, or post with #liamsfunto5k and we will share on our social media pages. At the end of the program, we will use all of your photos to create a video montage to share with UNC Children's Hospital! 
On race day, anyone who completes the training program, will receive a free drink ticket at packet pick-up and your choice of a t-shirt or tank from our previous Liam Strong races.
We will also have optional meet-ups to give everyone a chance to get to know each other, learn more, and have additional special days to run in Liam's honor.
How Do I Opt In?
Simply send an email to and we will add you to the weekly emails!
This year's program will officially start on July 8th!
(and it's never too late to join!)
This program is in memory of Liam and meant to share hope and love through miles ran in his honor across the places you love and live! 
We would be honored to have you be a part of this journey and we can't wait to see you on race day!
