Event Information

This is the 16th year for the best undiscovered Destination Race you'll ever do! The race includes a beautiful, USATF-certified (NC13063DF) Half Marathon and precisely measured 5K that starts and finishes at the Battleship North Carolina across the river from downtown Wilmington, NC. It's only 9 miles to Wrightsville Beach which is one of the most picturesque beaches on the east coast. The Half Marathon course crosses 2 bridges, goes through historic downtown Wilmington, and tours beautiful Greenfield Lake with the 12-mile mark at the top of the Memorial Bridge which is the highest point on the course. Entries are limited to 2,000 runners in the Half Marathon and 400 in the 5K. The course is challenging for a coastal area race, but has produced 8 USATF state records in our 15-year history. There is a downtown expo/packet pickup, pre-race dinner onboard the Battleship, Zorrel shirts in both races, and beautiful custom Battleship Half Marathon finisher medals. The race benefits many local charities.
