• Saturday, March 2nd 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Embark on an exploration of the Crystal Coast that includes plenty of incredible views along the way with the annual Run Crystal Coast Half Marathon, 10k & 5k. Held in the month of March, which is one of the most picturesque and temperate times to explore the area, this unique course that follows the water features a few challenges, tons of scenery, and ample opportunities to get out and get active with fellow Crystal Coast racing fans.

The Run Crystal Coast Half Marathon, 10k & 5k is hosted in the heart of Morehead City, and has a home base that’s just steps from the waterfront. This sets the stage for the ensuing course, which includes a scenic climb over the bridge across the Intercoastal Waterway to Atlantic Beach. All participants receive a finisher medal, event T-shirt, and post-race craft beer, and there’s plenty of food and fun waiting at the race after-party that takes place at the finish line. With lots of views and plenty of room to explore, the annual Run Crystal Coast Half Marathon, 10k & 5k is a great opportunity for active visitors to fully explore some of the prettiest sections of the Crystal Coast while enjoying a waterfront run, walk, or jog along the coastline.
