Qualify for the Boston Marathon

Qualifying for the Boston Marathon is a coveted, but challenging accomplishment. It’s a lifetime goal for many runners, and we’re happy to provide our participants with a great course that is Boston qualified. On top of that, the Wrightsville Beach Marathon course is mostly flat with a few gentle rolling hills that allows you to run fast, keep pace, and gives you the best chance of running the required time to reach that new PR or getting that Boston qualifying time.

According to, the Wrightsville Beach Marathon had one of the highest percent of Boston qualifying finishers in 2017 – and that gets us really excited! Ever year the total number of racers goes up, and if that means new people from around the country are coming to our marathon to qualify for Boston, then we welcome you with open arms!

There are many Boston qualifier races out there to run, but we can’t deny the charm of our marathon. Not only are your friends and family cheering you along, but you also have full support from the crowds in our community. We become one big run-happy family during Wrightsville Beach Marathon, and we encourage you to find that out first hand by registering for our marathon!

So what are you waiting for? If you’re ready to become Boston qualified, we’re ready to get you there. Sign up for our 2020 26.2 full marathon today!
