Race Information

Join the in-person Coast Guard Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K! This race series was created in collaboration with the Coast Guard and Base Elizabeth City for both military and non-military participants as the first road race of the United States Coast Guard.

Are you up for the challenge? Join the Semper Paratus Challenge. “Semper Paratus” means Always Ready and is the official motto of the United States Coast Guard. This Challenge invites athletes to push themselves even harder by completing not one but two of the Coast Guard Marathon races in one weekend!

They hope you can join them at 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.
