New Date: October 9th, 2021
Our team has been working diligently to plan a safe event for you in Holden Beach originally scheduled for May 1st. Each town is very unique with different logistical obstacles and approval processes. I think that has become even more apparent lately as we have two races approved, one of those being with more restrictions and now one postponed to the Fall. And other local races are being cancelled and postponed. Your race directors (especially here at CRP) are the absolute last people who would want to postpone or cancel a race!
Why October 9th?
There are many factors that go into picking a race date (especially when postponing). We need to consider town events, town resources being used, be considerate to other local events and race dates that are set and of course - get approval. We realize this is the weekend of a couple of major races in the US.
Registered Participants Have Three Options:
1) (DEFAULT) You will be transferred to the postponed date on October 9th automatically - nothing you need to do.
2) Transfer to Virtual - this is free and can be managed online through your Run Sign Up account. Click here for a tutorial to help you with this "event transfer".
3) Defer to 2022 (4/30/2022). To do this, we've waived the fee, just login and select "defer". Click Here for a tutorial to help you with this. We hope you'll join us in October for Run Holden Beach! Please stay safe and healthy out there!
The Half Marathon starts at 7:00am and the breath taking views from the heights of the Holden Beach Bridge makes this a must do race. The course has changed and will include some off island and a new gated community at the east end - it is beautiful! The 5K begins at 7:15am and is all on island and very fast! Our 1 Miler is at 8:30am so bring the whole family and make it a day!
The giveaway for this race is Custom Designed Beach Towel and all Finishers will receive a Huge Dimensional Locket Style Medal which will include a picture of Holden Beach by one of our local photographers. . *Please Note - the giveaway is for the Half Marathon and 5K distances only.
Located in lower Brunswick County of coastal North Carolina these races take place in the 4 lower barrier islands - just north of Myrtle Beach SC and south of Wilmington NC. These islands are Turtle Sanctuaries with natural beauty in all directions from sunrise to sunset you won't regret the trip to Run the NC Coast! New this year, participate in all 4 events and earn a HUGE 8 inch Challenge Medal. This can be any combination of distance including the Full Marathon, Half Marathon or 5K and may also combine with a virtual or two if your unavailable to make any of the dates. We certainly hope you'll come and run with us on location - it's funner to run with friends!
