Half Marathon

The event’s newest addition is a 13.1 mile half marathon.

Marathon Relay

The marathon relay allows runners to form teams of 2-4 participants, split the distance, and run the 26.2 miles. The relay will follow the same course as the full marathon and will have three exchange points along the way.

Maritime 8K

For a shorter distance run or walk, the Maritime 8K is a good option. Runners will begin their journey in the downtown area of Newport News, venturing around the downtown area and finishing at the Newport News Victory Arch.
