Get your running shoes ready! Join us to celebrate and honor the U.S. Coast Guard in Elizabeth City, home to one of the largest and busiest Coast Guard bases. The race begins at the waterfront in our picturesque, historic downtown and continues along our riverfront, then runners will loop through the U.S. Coast Guard Base and Air Station and finally return downtown via Elizabeth City State University.

Join us at the finish line party! We'll have food, drinks and live music following the race. Runners will receive a Coast Guard Marathon t-shirt and there will be finisher medals for all participants.

The marathon is hosted by Visit Elizabeth City.
