Virtual Options:

We are now offering virtual races for all races!  This includes Run Holden Beach, Run Ocean Isle Beach, Calabash Turkey Trot and the Wilmington Historic Half Marathon in 2018 and all 2019 events.

Keep in mind, these are our policies and they may differ from another virtual race company.  We think you will find our options very accommodating to you as a runner and we ask that you please read them carefully.  We are a small company and cannot make any special exceptions

This is something that you must register for separately and the following registration policies apply.  

  • Must be registered for the virtual option in order to receive race packet by mail.
  • If you are registered to run in a race and cannot attend, all of the registration policies on our FAQ page still  apply to you.  The only way to run a race virtually and receive your packet in the mail is if you are registered under the virtual option.

  • You may transfer to the virtual option up to 7 days prior to an event.  You will manage this through your personal RunSignUp account and there is a $15.00 processing fee. CLICK HERE to login.

  • Packets will not be available for pick up race weekend.  Even if you come to the race for any reason, or send family/friends to pick up your packet, we will not hand out any bibs, shirts, medals, or other swag items for any virtuals during a race weekend.
  • ALL virtual packets will be mailed within 2 weeks of the race. 
  • We will only ship packets to those who are actually registered for the virtual option. (Cut off for this is 7days prior to the each event)

*If you decide to come to the race instead of run it virtually.  You must manage this through your RunSignUp account 7 days prior to the event.  You will have to pay the difference in price as well as a $15.00 processing fee but we would love to have you join us!  It’s so much more fun to run with friends! 🙂


Also note:  If you ran a virtual race with Coastal Race Productions in the past (2017), our policies are very different now.  You used to be able to choose 1 race in a series to be “virtual” – we do not offer that anymore.  Please read our above guidelines and register for a virtual race of your choice.



We will be shipping all packets out via USPS within 2 weeks following the event.

You will receive the same bib, shirt, medal and any other “finisher” swag given to runners for the event – just as if you showed up to be at the event.

If you’ve signed up to be at the race but for any reason you can’t make it and want to switch or “transfer” your race to a virtual race, yes you can do this.

#1)  It must be done no less than 7 days in advance before the event.

#2)  You must manage this yourself by logging into your account and choosing the transfer to virtual, keep in mind there will be an online processing fee to make any changes.

Sorry but we will only be mailing these, no exceptions.  We know it seems easier and saves money to just hand it to a family member or friend at a race sometimes – but its easier for us to manage after the event.  It’s also easier on our volunteers.  We appreciate you understanding.
