“I am excited for the first-ever, in-person Coast Guard Marathon. The completely virtual inaugural event last year was more successful than we could have imagined and set the pace for this legacy event in honor of the greater Coast Guard for years to come. I am personally looking forward to running with and meeting participants from across the nation in Elizabeth City for the March 2022 event!”
