NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – If you plan on being one of the many athletes who will run, swim, and bike through the Port City as part of PPD’s Beach 2 Battleship Triathlon, you have less than a month left to register.
According to the website for the event, beach2battleship.com, Oct. 17 will be the last day to sign up to compete in either the full or half marathon. There are 195 spots left to compete in the full event, and just 9 left for the half event.
Participants will start out with a swim at Wrightsville Beach before biking their way to the USS North Carolina Battleship, then will complete a run and before heading back to the battleship.
In the past, organizers have said that people came from as far away as Europe to take part.
