11th Seacoast Half Marathon

Nov 13th 2016

We are honored to announce that the Seacoast Family Food Pantry has been selected as this year's Seacoast Half Marathon beneficiary. In the 10 years that the Seacoast Half Marathon has been held, it has donated more than $749,000 to non-profit organizations serving coastal New Hampshire and Maine. The Seacoast Half Marathon is a fantastic race with an incredible purpose - we hope to see you all there!

The Mission of the Seacoast Half Marathon:

Caring for the coast,"one step at a time" is our motto. Each year, we donate 100% of the net proceeds to a mindfully selected seacoast nonprofit organization. We strive to put on a well-organized and safe event that highlights the beauty of New Hampshire's historic seacoast. We encourage all levels of athletes to enjoy themselves while also providing them an opportunity to significantly benefit our community.
