Meet Information

Wilmington Beach Blast XC Invite

You run the night - stay for the sun

What could be better? Running fast on a flat course under the lights at Wilmington's Olsen Park! Located just a few miles from Wrightsville Beach, Surf City and Pleasure Island, the Wilmington Beach Blast allows teams the unique opportunity to travel for an early season night time invite and then stay over for team fun in the sun on Saturday at one of our world renown beaches.

Replacing the popular Seahawk Invite, the Wilmington Beach Blast isn't just the most scenic destination your cross country team will visit - it's likely to be the fastest too.


Olsen Park - Home to the Mideastern Conference Championships and New Hanover County Championships, Wilmington's newest racing venue. With zero elevation change the course is fast, however rain can make some sections wet, and fun!

5510 Olsen Park Lane

Wilmington, NC 28405

Entrance to park is off Corporate Drive.

Note: no entry to park from Murrayville Road
