About The Emerald Isle Marathon

Are you ready to embark on an unforgettable running adventure? Mark your calendars for October 26, 2024, because the Emerald Isle Marathon is back for its 8th annual event! Set against the stunning backdrop of the Crystal Coast in Emerald Isle, North Carolina, this race promises exhilarating moments, breathtaking scenery, and a chance to make a difference.

As a USAT&F certified and sanctioned race, the Emerald Isle Marathon holds a special distinction – it’s a Boston Qualifier! So, if you’ve dreamt of running the iconic Boston Marathon, this is your perfect opportunity to achieve that goal. Not only will you be conquering new personal records, but you will also be supporting local initiatives. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the local Bike and Pedestrian Path and a health-related charity, allowing you to run for a cause you truly care about.

Apart from the race itself, the vibrant city of Emerald Isle offers its own enticing charm. With pristine beaches, inviting coastal trails, and friendly locals, it’s no wonder that this hidden gem is a favorite destination for outdoor enthusiasts. Picture yourself running alongside the turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean, feeling the refreshing sea breeze on your face, and being uplifted by the cheers from the supportive crowds lining the route.

In late October, you can expect the weather to be splendid. The cooler autumn temperatures, with highs averaging around 70°F (21°C), will create the perfect running conditions. Not too hot, not too cold – just the ideal climate to push your limits and revel in the natural beauty that Emerald Isle has to offer.

So lace up your running shoes, embrace the joy of giving back, and prepare for an incredible experience at the Emerald Isle Marathon. Whether you’re an experienced half marathon runner or an adventurous spirit seeking a new challenge, this race will leave you with unforgettable memories and a heart full of satisfaction. Get ready to run, laugh, and celebrate your accomplishments with fellow passionate runners. It’s time to make waves along the Crystal Coast and discover the true meaning of running bliss!
