Crystal Coast Half Marathon
Race was average - 2014 Race
By: Jim Berger - (Emerald Isle, NC)
I was disappointed in the shirts this year and I do not like getting water from a garden hose at the water stops. Also, the AG awards where nice ($50) but I think having to travel to Raligh-Durham to cash them in is a bit much. I live 3 hours out.

Cherry Point Half Marathon
Nice little race - 2013 Race
By: L. M. - (Virginia Beach, VA)
Nice small race. Course takes you around Cherry Point Air Station residential area so it's nice to run. Volunteers were excellent. Not much after refreshments but it was too cold to stick around anyway.

Outer Banks Half Marathon
Loved the race - 2013 Race
By: Jim Warner - (Louisville, Ohio)
They had enough porta-potties at the start. Had wave starting. Good crowd support. Easy to see mile markers. Great party after race, soup, snacks, beer and a good band. Awards announced at the post race party. Good time of the year for a half marathon. Nice place to spend a few days after the race.
