The 4th Annual Sports Center Chum Run is the first event of its kind on the Crystal Coast.

The Chum Run is a 5k Obstacle Run to benefit children's programs at Camp Albemarle. There are approximately 15 obstacles of all types, including an open water swim, to challenge your strength and endurance.

The Little Chummers Run for ages 7-15 makes this a fun event for the whole family. Participants swim, jog, crawl, climb, slide and jump their way to the finish line, where fans, refreshments and showers are waiting.

Multiple heats accommodate participants of different ages and ability levels. A timing system is provided for a select number of heats, but the goal is to HAVE FUN completing the event.
