15th Annual Seacoast Half Marathon
Virtual Race Dates - October 31 - November 8, 2020
Our 2020 Beneficiary is Cornerstone VNA, a local healthcare non-profit on the front lines of COVID-19
The Mission of the Seacoast Half Marathon:
Caring for the coast,”one step at a time” is our motto. Each year, we donate 100% of the net proceeds to a mindfully selected seacoast nonprofit organization. We strive to put on a well-organized and safe event that highlights the beauty of New Hampshire’s historic seacoast. We encourage all levels of athletes to enjoy themselves while also providing them an opportunity to significantly benefit our community.
The 2020 Seacoast Half Marathon has Gone Virtual!
The Seacoast Half Marathon is one of the longest-running half marathons in coastal New Hampshire. Due to COVID-19, we have decided to transition this year’s race to a “virtual” race. It wasn’t an easy decision, but we hope you understand. We want our racers and our volunteers to stay healthy and safe. Although we’d prefer to see you all in person, let’s join together virtually and keep the momentum going for this annual race!
To add some excitement to our virtual race, we have added some new options! You can choose a 5K, a quarter marathon (6.55 miles) or the half marathon.That means that you can pick a distance that’s right for you, and decide where to run or walk. As an added perk, you can pick your day and run or walk between October 31 and November 8!
The Seacoast Marathon is unique in that all of the revenue (after race expenses) goes to local non-profit beneficiaries. This year’s beneficiary is Cornerstone VNA. So we encourage you to make a donation to Cornerstone VNA when you register, and/or set up your own fundraising page to get family and friends to help with your fundraising efforts. Your fundraising efforts can help you earn some fun swag, as well as free registration in the 2021 Seacoast Half Marathon!
