Coastal Race Productions is a family business that I started with my mother-in-law Johnna Terragna in 2014. She was running another (somewhat local) race and just had a horrible experience – getting lost on the course, poor course management, just NOT a fun time! ..and on our way back, we decided that we could do it better!
We’re passionate about the sport and love coming together on race day to put on a really fun event. We’ve arranged all of our races in the shoulder seasons (outside of Memorial Day – Labor Day) because it really helps to promote tourism to our area when it’s not quite as busy – plus it’s just too DAMN HOT here to put on a race..
We started out just as “Run Sunset Beach, LLC” – we only ever planned to do one race. And it’s grown into so much more! Coastal Race Productions now owns and manages 6 races per year. We have the “Big Ass Medal Race Series” which – you guessed it – has really big medals for the finishers. In fact, runners who run the entire 4 race series in a calendar year earn the world’s largest race series medals! We do really nice tri-blend shirts (kids sizes too), help fund-raise for local non-profits and promote a really healthy lifestyle in our community. On top of our #BigAssMedal Race Series, we put on a Turkey Trot in Calabash (5K race) and a Day 1 Run in Shallotte on January 1st (5K race).
