With safety in mind, this inaugural event is going virtual! The race can be run any time through the month of March wherever you choose. Run your own race, at your own pace, in your own space, all while paying homage to our United States Coast Guard men and women.

“Elizabeth City Coast Guard members as well as the greater Coast Guard are excited to support the upcoming Coast Guard Half Marathon and 5K in March 2021! As you are likely aware, the Coast Guard is the only military service, until this race, without a major running event in their name. The Coast Guard has worked extensively with Visit Elizabeth City to assist in press and public affairs videos to help spread the word about this fantastic event.”
Brook Sherman, Commanding Officer
USCG Base Elizabeth City
