EXPERIENCE BEAUTIFUL HILTON HEAD ISLAND LIKE ONLY A RUNNER CAN

We are looking to provide an awesome running experience with our inaugural event on Hilton Head Island. We've got 2 events to choose from - the Half Marathon (13.1mi) and the Quarter Marathon (6.55mi). We've got a course that showcases Hilton Head's beauty, we've got the bling-bling, and mother nature is bringing the perfect running weather in March. And, after you have a running good time - you'll be served an awesome breakfast at Carolina Coffee & Crumbs (the Island's favorite local coffee and breakfast spot)! It’ll all be waiting for you here at the Hilton Head Half & Quarter Marathon.

 

RACE COURSE

Starting and finishing at the new LowCountry Celebration Park - the race course takes you through the S Forest Beach and N Forest Beach neighborhoods - utilizing the leisure paths and hidden roads. Its flat, fast, and abundantly scenic! This is a "locals" course - taking you along the paths that we run regularly because it's just awesome!
