The goal of the Emerald Isle Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K is to give back to our community and local charities. 50% of proceeds will benefit the Emerald Isle Bike path and 50% will benefit the American Heart Association. 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.

50% of the proceeds from the race go to the American Heart Association. Please read Suzanne Rush's heart transplant story

From the Race Director

Our second annual race is aimed at benefiting the Emerald Isle bike path and the American Heart Association. The 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!

Candace Dooley, Race Director
