2023 Coast Guard Marathon: Compete or Complete!

  • Jennifer Crowley Fyke

Coast Guard Marathon weekend is March 2-4, 2023, in Elizabeth City, North Carolina.

Participants may choose from a full marathon, half-marathon, or 5K. Or you can take on the Semper Paratus Challenge and complete the 5K and the half or full marathon. You can join the marathon in Elizabeth City or sign up for a virtual option and run a course when and where it’s best for you.

As a bonus, the race route is flat, fast, and a Boston Marathon qualifying event.

Command Master Chief Frank Tatu from the Coast Guard’s 5th District has an important message for those planning to run the 2023 Coast Guard Marathon.

“I encourage you all to take the lead and invest in your health and wellness,” he shared in a video promoting participation in the event. “I’m not doing the marathon to compete. I’m doing the marathon to complete.”

Will you accept the challenge and join us for the Coast Guard Marathon in March?

The Coast Guard Foundation actively partners with the Coast Guard Marathon by serving as a Coast Guard community resource. We will again attend the 2023 Race Expo and Race Day events to share our Coast Guard Foundation mission and engage with the Coast Guard community. In 2022, the Coast Guard Foundation received a charitable contribution from the Coast Guard Marathon to support morale and wellness initiatives for Coast Guard members and their families.
