Registration For 2022 Wilmington / Wrightsville Beach, NC
February 26th, 2022

Marathon Spectator Information and Runner Tracking

Runners please download the RaceJoy application to be tracked, see the information below about tracking

Our point to point course makes it fun to track your runner via race joy or find fun places between the beach and downtown to spectate.  You can begin your journey around the Eastwood Military cutoff corridor and see your runner around mile 3.  You can then drive on open roads and get downtown and see your runner come off the Martin Luther King Jr. BLVD and run downtown Wilmington to the finish.

Full athletes will venture to Greenfield Lake and back so spectators can park and bike or drive down 5th street to Greenfield and see their runner head into Lakeshore drive and back.


  • Bike next to your Runner
  • Try to go near the finish line
  • J-Walk, please cross at the proper cross walks
  • Walk in front of runners on the course

Start: Johnny Mercer Pier, Wrightsville Beach
Finish: Downtown Wilmington
Expo/Packet Pickup 11am to 8:00pm Friday: Wilmington Convention Center
