Whether you are new to running or are a seasoned professional, the Quintiles Wrightsville Beach Marathon presented by Landfall Realty is an exciting way to push yourself to your limits. The race is run on a street course overlooking the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. Have fun while testing your endurance for each incredible mile. Because the marathon course has an elevation of just 32 feet, you may just run your best race yet. The Quintiles Wrightsville Beach Marathon is also a Boston Marathon qualifier. But most importantly, it’s a whole lot of fun. The marathon is incredibly popular in the community, and has been known to sell out—register early! Family, friends, and spectators are welcome to come cheer on their favorite runners. Remember, all levels are welcome and all athletes will be treated to free beer at the finish line and a Without Limits t-shirt custom-made for each event. Come enjoy marathon madness at the Quintiles Wrightsville Beach Marathon!

Just want to tell you how much i enjoyed the race. I've run in several marathons and consider this the best organized from start to finish. I did set a new personal best and my son-in-law qualified for The Boston Marathon. A Big Thank You to all the volunteers and of coarse to you for all the hard work it takes to make this a success. I live in Sugar Land Texas just to let you know this was no small trip. Again THANKS SO MUCH TO ALL.

Sincerely, James
P.S. The after race celebrations were excellent.
