Description

Runners, get ready for the trek through downtown Historic Wilmington, North Carolina with a Half Marathon, 10K or 5K! The Battleship Half Marathon started in 1998 and is one of the oldest Half Marathons in the South. We are excited for you to join us and run through Battleship History.

Moored in quiet dignity and majesty the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA, across the river from downtown Wilmington, beckons visitors to walk her decks. Envision the daily life and fierce combat her crew faced in the Pacific Theatre during World War II. From all across our Nation they came, young men who had grown up in the crucible of the Great Depression and now determined to serve their Country in its time of need. These are the men whose stories you will encounter through their oral histories, photographs, and mementos as you experience the Ship and the exhibits. Step back in time and let history come alive through the crews’ stories. Imagine yourself steering the ship, starting her engines or even firing the guns. JOIN THE CREW and be a part of Battleship history at the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA! www.battleshipnc.com

Race Rules

COURSE CUTOFF TIMES
Half Marathoners have 3:30:00 to complete the race.  After 3:30:00 runners will be asked to turn their bib to the course marshal.  There will no longer be traffic control, or volunteers on the course after this time period.   If it's looking like you will not make the cutoff time, we will give you a warning first.  There is no specific cutoff for the 10K as long as runners are off the road by 11:00am. 

TRASH
It is a violation to throw your trash on the course outside of an aid station. If you have gel packs, cups, or anything of this nature, please use our aid stations to dispose. We have basketball hoop trash cans at each aid station. Do your best to score a nice shot! This not only helps keep our city clean but helps give the runners behind you a positive experience by not having to run over trash.

COURSE ETIQUETTE
Follow the instructions of our course volunteers. We strongly suggest not using headphones as it is very important for you to be able to hear any directions of our course volunteers.

NO BIKE OR RUN PACING
Please tell your friends and family they cannot bike pace or run pace you on the course.  Based on USATF Rule 144 no runner shall be paced by another runner NOT registered in the race.  Therefore if you wish to get paced, you must be paced by a registered participant that starts with the race and has purchased a bib.  If you are caught without a bib pacing a runner, the runner you are pacing will be disqualified. 

Aid Stations

Aid stations will be available at miles 3, 7, and 10.  Aid stations will consist of water, electrolyte fluids, and Clif gels, and will inclue 2 to 4 bathrooms. 

Military

All active and veteran military are eligable for a discounted entry.  Please email battleshiphalfmarathon@gmail.com with any kind of reference to you being active military such as an ID or government email address.
