The Seacoast Half Marathon was founded in 2006. Since the inception of the half marathon, the goal has been to use the race to raise funds for, and focus attention on different non-profit organizations that serve people on the New Hampshire seacoast. The race tag line, “Caring for the Coast, One Step at a Time,” is our way of communicating what the Seacoast Half Marathon is really all about.
All revenue after race expenses will be given to the selected beneficiary. Each year the amount varies, but in prior years it has ranged between $35,000 and $120,000, based on race registrations, sponsorships, and out-of-pocket race expenses. Funding will be considered for general operating income, new programs or capital projects.
