Come for the run and stay for the fun! The Coast Guard Marathon is an annual endurance event held the beginning of April in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. First held in 2021 to celebrate the Coast Guard and the Officially Designated Coast Guard City of Elizabeth City, the very first Coast Guard Marathon was held virtually due to pandemic closures. The U.S. Coast Guard, Elizabeth City Community, and runners from all over the world were able to gather for the first in-person edition of the races in March of 2022. Although one of the newest of the Prestigious Military Races, the Coast Guard Marathon has had participants from every Military Branch, all 50 states, and numerous countries throughout the world.
Race weekend features four event distances; a marathon, half marathon, 5K, and 1K Kids’ Run as well as two Semper Paratus Challenge Series where runners can earn a challenge coin after completing the 5K and half marathon or marathon in one weekend. Other exciting events include our two-day Coast Guard Marathon Expo, A Toast to the Coast Guard Dinner, Finish Line Festival, and After Party.
Our fast and flat Boston Qualifying marathon course features a beautiful waterfront through a historic town filled with southern charm and the opportunity of a lifetime to run on the U.S. Coast Guard Base Elizabeth City runway. We look forward to sharing our Southern Hospitality!
