Cardinal Strut - Saturday March 19, 2022

Wilmington's First 5k and 1 mile Fun Run with a FOAM PARTY at the finish line!

Get ready for the 13th Annual Cardinal Strut 5K Run and Walk at Long Leaf Park! This event will benefit local Cape Fear families on the childhood cancer journey. All are welcome to run, walk, skip or strut their way across an easy 5K course or 1 mile Fun Run through the park.

This year’s race t-shirt was lovingly designed by Jorja Belle, a childhood cancer warrior and survivor who wanted to remind the world “Donut Give Up!”

Do I have to run? Can I walk? We welcome everyone at the Cardinal Strut! Runners, joggers, walkers, skippers, strutters, sidesteppers, etc!

Category 1 – Competitive 5K Runners…I’ll eat my doughnuts when I am finished running – I’m here to run fast and shoot for a PR.

Category 2 – Recreational Runner – I’m planning to enjoy my doughnuts as I run the 5K.

Strut for Kid’s mission only succeeds through strong support and partnerships with caring businesses, whose goal is also to give back to the community where it operates. Your association with Strut for Kids allows you to join hands in supporting local children battling cancer.
