17th Annual Seacoast Half Marathon

Run through history to benefit Portsmouth NH 400

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.
