We are currently sold out on tshirts. We will have a “tshirt swap” station at the finish line where you will have the ability to get a tshirt based on availability.
Run Holden Beach 2019 showcases an amazing finisher medal and super soft shirts for all finishers. See the medal you’ll earn below – it features a 3 dimensional old treasure chest sitting at the bottom of the ocean with gold overflowing. The half marathon medal is 7.5″ while the 5K is 4.5″ – both massive and 3D fitting perfectly with our traditional Big Ass Medal theme.
Runners love our super soft shirts. They come in unisex sizing from Youth Small to Adult XXL.
For directions to the start/finish line area you can use the address: 0 Jordan Blvd. Supply, NC 28462. Be sure to bring your pre-race hydration of choice and show up a little early – we recommend about 60 minutes prior to your start time however packet pickup and checkin opens at 5:30am.
Parking will be near the start/finish line and various lots on the Island. It is ok to park on the side of the road as long as all 4 tires are off of the road.
The Half Marathon starts at 7:00am with the 5K start immediately following (approximately 7:15am) and the 1Mile at 8:30am. *Please note that all half marathon and 5K runners must be across the bridge no later than 6:30am.
Saftey is our #1 priority. While we work with local authorities and DOT to shut down as many roads as possible, a portion of the course is open to vehicles so it’s important to be aware. We discourage headphones and no dogs are allowed per USATF sanctioning. Follow our directional signs, volunteers and law enforcement – they know the course and where you need to be running. Use every water stop to stay hydrated on the course and have fun, we’ll see you at the finish line!
Hang around a while. We’ll have the DJ playing your favorite tunes, post race food, beer and games – plus awards for top 3 overall male and female as well as age groups (every 5 years) for both the 5K and Half Marathon male and female runners. Bring a chair if you’d like, signs to cheer on others and enjoy the after party with us! *Must be present to receive awards – we do not ship them!
No ID = No Beer
Arrive early – you don’t want to miss your start
Bring your bib and pre-race hydration
This course has undergone some changes due to permitting and for the overall safety of runners. We are able to cone and close off much more of the course for you this year. Half Marathoners are taking a longer run off the island out to a scenic point before heading back and running an incredible island course to finish up. The 5K and 1 Mile race distances will remain the same as in the past on the island.
