Dates Announced for 2024 Coast Guard Marathon Weekend

We just ran a few short weeks ago...okay...almost a month ago now...but it was announced this week the tentative dates for the 2024 race weekend! We're looking at Friday April 5th to Sunday April 7th. It's looking like the 5K will take place on Saturday and the Half Marathon and Full Marathon will take place on Sunday. No answer has been given as to why they changed it to April or why it's Saturday and Sunday races now instead of Friday and Saturday.

Registration opens on Coast Guard Day, August 4th. I will be signing up for the challenge again. Hopefully with it being in April we can look forward to warmer weather! I also counted backwards and it look like my 12 week training won't start until about mid January which is great! I won't have to figure out how to rearrange (or skip) my runs around the holidays.

It also gives me some more time to sign up for the virtual run club. I want to make sure that I have access through my race next year so I'll probably sign up either mid April or early May. That way I can work with them on starting to build my mileage up, add in long runs, be ready to tackle the the 12 week training plan again, and be able to talk about the recovery post race.

I'm so excited! If you want to stay up to date about the Coast Guard Marathon Weekend, bookmark their website or follow them on Facebook or Instagram. I will also share updates as I see them so you can subscribe here to make sure you get notified when I post!
