From the Race Director

Hello runners! We hope that you will join us for our fourth annual race on March 25, 2017. As promised, each year we choose a new charity that will benefit from the race proceeds. We are excited to announce that the chosen beneficiaries are the Crystal Coast Autism Center and the Emerald Isle Bike and Pedestrian Path. Autism affects many lives and is a cause that is near and dear to my heart.

Please allow me to thank all of the committee members who work throughout the year to provide to best experience for everyone on race day, our hundreds of volunteers who selflessly work on race day to make our event a success, our sponsors who make this race possible for so many and to the Town of Emerald Isle for their continued support and enthusiasm for this race!

We look forward to hosting all of our participants for another successful race and hope to see you on race day!

Candace Dooley, Race Director
