About The Battleship Half Marathon

The Battleship Half Marathon, presented by Wicked Weed, is an iconic race that takes place in Wilmington, North Carolina on November 12, 2023. This race offers three exciting distances – a 5K, a 10K, and the exhilarating Half Marathon.

Starting and finishing at Water Street Park, the course takes you through the charming downtown Historic Wilmington, offering stunning views of the city’s architectural wonders along the way. But the highlight of the race is undoubtedly the presence of the majestic Battleship NORTH CAROLINA. Moored across the river from downtown Wilmington, this battleship stands as a symbol of bravery and honor. As you run through the heart of the city, you can’t help but envision the unimaginable combat her crew faced during World War II.

Aside from the incredible historical significance, runners can also look forward to a memorable finish line experience. Upon crossing the finish line, participants will be greeted with a refreshing beer from Wicked Weed for those 21 and over, a coveted finisher medal by Parkway of Subaru, and a gift card for a free waffle at any Wilmington Waffle House. These rewards are sure to make the miles worth it!

November in Wilmington promises pleasant weather, with temperatures usually ranging from the mid-50s to low 70s, providing ideal running conditions for all participants.

So lace up your running shoes, experience the rich history of this vibrant city, and be a part of Battleship history by joining the crew at the Battleship Half Marathon. Remember, when you finish this race, not only will you leave with a sense of accomplishment, but you’ll also have the chance to explore the magnificent Battleship North Carolina for free. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity – set sail for your next running adventure!
