Countdown to Next Price Increase








Lace up your running shoes!

Coast Guard Marathon weekend begins March 3, 2022

Join us for the first-ever in-person Coast Guard Marathon, Half Marathon or 5K proudly brought to you by our Presenting Sponsor: AdeNation! This race series was created in collaboration with the Coast Guard and Base Elizabeth City to both military and non-military participants as the first road race of the United States Coast Guard.

The 2022 event will be held both in-person and virtually! We hope you can join us here in Elizabeth City, NC for race weekend, but if traveling is not in the cards you can run your own race at your own pace from wherever you are with the virtual option.

Coast Guard Marathon Distances

This is one race you don’t want to miss! The first in-person Coast Guard Marathon in Elizabeth City, North Carolina offers distances for runners of all levels of experience. Get your heart pumping with the 5K or push yourself to the limit with the Semper Paratus Challenge.

Choose your distance, lace up your running shoes and support our USCG men and women from coast to coast.

“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!”
