Run the Fort is a race at Fort Macon in Atlantic Beach that supports a different nonprofit organization from around the Carteret County area each year. The entirety of our proceeds will go to this chosen charity and will hopefully benefit them in whatever they support.
This year, all proceeds from Run the Fort will go to the Boys and Girls Club of the Coastal Plain. The Boys and Girls Club provides a safe place for the children of eastern NC to go after school and during the summer, offering them tutoring, hot meals and a sense of community.
$30 registration fee (includes Run the Fort hat)
$90 family package-includes 4 participants and two hats
Custom awards by local artist Grace Bell will be given to the first three finishers.
We will be giving the first 200 participants hats featuring Run the Fort's logo.
The Fort Macon trail is a multi-terrain trail that overlooks the ocean and takes you through the one-of-a-kind environment of the Crystal Coast. The terrain includes sand, boardwalk and dirt with dunes and hills through maritime forests. Although this trail is somewhat challenging due to the changing terrain and hills, it makes it all the more rewarding when you cross the finish line.
