Plan Your Stay

Save the date! The first in-person Coast Guard Run is on March 5, 2022 in designated Coast Guard City, Elizabeth City, North Carolina.

We’re excited to invite you to the home of the first-ever Coast Guard Half Marathon. Our quaint, coastal town’s southern charm will make you feel right at home. Spend the weekend in our waterfront community, enjoy our local restaurants, and scope out the sights.

We’re expecting over 10,000 runners and supporters in our harbor town for this Coast Guard-sanctioned event. With runners from all 50 states and several countries, we’re already seeing lodging reservations for folks excited for next year’s race! Reserve your room with one of our hotels, motels, bed & breakfasts or unique vacation rentals before they’re booked! To see a full list of places to stay in Elizabeth City, go to
