The Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) has selected the Hilton Head Island Marathon as the RRCA South Carolina State Marathon Championship. The RRCA Championship Event Series is the largest grassroots organized running series in the US, attracting over 320,000 runners each year. The goal of the RRCA Championship Event Series is to shine a spotlight on well-run events and to award top performing runners in the open, masters (40+), grand masters (50+), and senior grand masters (60+) categories for both men and women. Overall male and female winners in each of these categories will receive RRCA Marathon Championship awards.
The 2017 Hilton Head Island Marathon, Half Marathon & 8K will take place on Saturday, February 11th at 8:00am. Runners will depart from Jarvis Creek Park and follow a course that will take them on the Cross Island Parkway, through several parks, numerous neighborhoods and over Broad Creek. Both The Marathon and Half Marathon will feature all standard male and female divisions.
The scenic Marathon course ‘Boston Qualifier’ is fast and flat except for the bridge crossings. Post race festivities include live music, vendors, and a craft beer garden.
