Our Resort is the dream location for training, competing and relaxing during the annual Quintiles Wrightsville Beach Marathon. Just down the street from the race’s starting line, our resort’s back doors open directly onto the beach, placing our guests footsteps away from a warm-up jog against an elemental backdrop of sun, sand and the Southern Atlantic Ocean. Our lawn and gardens, curtailed by sea grass and populated with Monarch butterflies, will be host to Yoga sessions and stretching stations.

Our gourmet kitchen staff cooks a healthy complimentary breakfast geared toward crafting outstanding athletic performance before the races and afterwards provides relaxation with a catered After Party, gourmet dining, classic Blockade Runner cocktails, fine wine, and local brews.

  • Complimentary healthy pre-race breakfast for BR Guests
  • Running at your level against a beautiful backdrop
  • A USATF Certified Qualifier

With a full schedule of racing designed to accommodate runners of all levels, the 2017 Quintiles Wrightsville Beach Marathon is a notorious performance ground for personal bests! With a peak elevation of only 32ft, the Marathon is a fast and flat blast!
