Wilmington, NC – Southeastern North Carolina’s longest continually running long distance road race, The Battleship North Carolina Half Marathon, has been acquired in a partnership by two of North Carolina’s most recognizable running brands: Without Limits and Go Time Race Management. The race, which averages 1500+ participants annually, brings a national and international audience to downtown Wilmington, NC for a 13.1 mile tour of the region’s most notable attractions. Highlights of the race include panoramic views of the Battleship NC and downtown Wilmington on course atop the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge, running downtown Wilmington’s newly renovated Riverwalk, racing under the mossy live oaks of Greenfield Lake Park through the antebellum streets of the historic district. The new ownership looks to continue the tradition of producing an unparalleled racing experience while bridging the gap between athletes and service providers in the booming southeastern coastal city situated on along the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. The race was purchased from 5 Star Race Productions.
