Explore the beauty of riverfront Wilmington and literally miles beyond by participating in the annual WILMA Dash & Health Fest. This fun event that combines an all-female 5K run and walk with a health and fitness-oriented after party is a great way to ring in the summer season with a focus on friends, fitness, and overall health for visitors and locals alike.

The WILMA Dash & Health Fest launches from the Coastline Convention Center in the heart of the downtown area, and the focus of the event is a fun 5K that is open to women of all ages and abilities. In addition to the run / walk, which explorers some of the prettiest sections of the downtown area and beyond, the event features an after-party that has ample ways to celebrate both health and fitness. At this follow-up event, attendees will be treated to catered food, music, health screenings and fitness assessments, and many more activities and attractions that are focused on health. With proceeds going to benefit the organization NouishNC, the WILMA Dash & Health Fest is a great way to get active, support a very worthy local cause, and enjoy fun and fellowship with women from all across the Cape Fear region.
