On November 17, 2012, the 2nd annual North Carolina Surf to Sound Challenge organized by the Blockade Runner Resort will take place in Wrightsville Beach. If you're a stand-up paddleboard enthusiast, you'll definitely want to mark your calendar for this popular fall event!

Two races compose the annual NC Surf to Sound Challenge: the 6.5 mile Surf to Sound Challenge and the 4 mile Harbor Island Outer Loop. In the 6.5 mile challenge, extreme paddlers will perform a surf start, paddle through the open Atlantic Ocean, navigate through Masonboro Inlet straits, continue behind Masonboro Island and finish the race soundside on Wrightsville Beach.

The 4 mile loop will allow paddlers to circumnavigate Harbor Island, taking in Mott's Channel, the Intracoastal Waterway, Lee's Cut and finally, Banks Channel to the finish line. This race is designed for less experienced paddlers.

Both events allows paddlers to compete for prizes while helping support Masonboro Island - one of our area's most beloved treasures.

Interested in signing up? Registration is open now until November 16, 2012. The cost to register is $60 for either race and proceeds will benefit FOR Masonboro (Friends of the Reserve). Register online by following this link: http://2012ncsurftosoundchallenge.eventbrite.com/.
