Join us to celebrate and honor the U.S. Coast Guard in Elizabeth City, home to one of the nation's largest and busiest Coast Guard bases.

Cheer on the runners and enjoy the festivities of the first-ever Coast Guard Marathon! All of Elizabeth City will be celebrating all things Coast Guard during race weekend as we welcome an influx of runners from all over the U.S. - maybe the world! - coming together.

Visit the Health & Fitness Expo Thursday and Friday, which will feature exhibitors showcasing a wide variety of products and services - plus samples! The Expo is open to the public, so all friends, family, and cheerleaders of our runners are welcome to enjoy the event. The big party will be at the finish line on Saturday! For the post-race celebration, join us for food, drinks, and live music at the finish line as we cheer on the arriving runners!

Be part of the first-ever in-person Coast Guard Marathon, Half Marathon or 5K! Please see our website for more information.
