About the Marathon

The goal of the Emerald Isle Half Marathon and 5K is to give back to our community and local charities. We believe in a healthy, active lifestyle. We are committed to giving you the best quality race while showcasing our beautiful island to all of our runners and spectators. We look forward to hosting you in Emerald Isle.

From the Race Director

Our first annual race is aimed at benefiting the Emerald Isle bike path. This path is used by both residents and vacationers. The expansion of the path has been an ongoing task by the town and 'Friends of the Path' for more than 10 years. It is a tremendous benefit for the safety of our runners, cyclists, children and walkers that utilize it daily. We hope to continue this race for years to come and continue to contribute to local charities and our community. Please allow me to thank you in advance for your support of our event!
