Why Virtual Race?

As we all know COVID-19 Cancelled a lot of our races including the 2020 NHRMC Wilmington Marathon.  Luckily our 11th Annual event will be held on February 27th, 2021 and we are offering a virtual race from our 2020 race Day (March 21st, 2020) through our 2021 Race Date, February 27th, 2021.

There is nothing like being at the race and experiencing it first hand, but sometimes travel expenses, active military being deployed, or multiple races in 1 weekend can create tough decisions.  Also a once in a lifetime global pandemic can really throw a wrench in plans.   We want you to be part of the NHRMC Wilmington Marathon weekend wherever you are, if you cannot make our 11th Annual event on site in 2021.  We highly encourage people from all over the world to run with us celebrating the Marathon weekend and raising some good money for our charities!  Of course virtual racing does not take the place of our amazing race experience, but it is a way for you to get involved and also help us out!  We are a 501c3 non-profit race that gives back to our local community.
