Seacoast Half Marathon Beneficiary Selection Process


At the beginning of each year, the Seacoast Half Marathon organizing committee selects a non-profit beneficiary for that year’s race. Each year’s revenue, after direct race expenses are paid, goes to the beneficiary and to the other non-profit groups that staff the water stops on the race course each year. Historically, the beneficiaries have earned between $35,000 and $120,000, depending on race registrations and sponsorship revenue.

Please download the beneficiary application to learn which types of organizations can qualify, what information is needed to complete the application process, and what the requirements are for each organization chosen as the Seacoast Half Marathon beneficiary.

2021 Beneficiary


Since our 2020 SHM transitioned to a virtual event due to COVID-19, and did not produce the same level of fundraising for our 2020 beneficiary, our SHM Race Committee has decided to continue with Cornerstone VNA as our 2021 beneficiary. We are pleased to be able to support this important organization once again, especially since they have been on the front lines of this pandemic. Please join us in congratulating Cornerstone VNA for being our 2021 beneficiary. Check back in December 2021 for our 2022 Beneficiary Application, which will be due on February 1, 2022.
