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.

2023 Beneficiary – Gather

The Seacoast Half Marathon is one of the longest-running half marathons in coastal New Hampshire. Our race is unique in that all of the revenue (after race expenses) goes to local non-profit beneficiaries.

This year, the Seacoast Half Marathon Race Committee is excited to welcome Gather as our 2023 race beneficiary. For 200 years, Gather has been serving Seacoast residents facing hunger. The agency was founded in 1816 by a small group of women committed to feeding the families of fishermen. Today, Gather is committed to ending local hunger through collaboration and leadership.

Gather serves those in our community experiencing hunger by providing nutritious food through innovative distribution programs and their Pantry Market. They offer nutrition education and recipes for healthy living and collaborate with community partners to address the root causes of hunger throughout the Seacoast in New Hampshire and Maine.

Gather’s mission is to make the Greater Seacoast a hunger-free community by distributing nourishing food to people who do not have enough to eat; taking a leadership role in building an equitable and sustainable regional food system; and galvanizing public support for ending hunger.
