<The Charleston Marathon celebrates its 11th anniversary in 2021! Race through historic Charleston, celebrate with Shrimp and Grits, and explore everything the #1 City in the U.S. has to offer!
This year’s Charleston Marathon® and Half Marathon are scenic 26.2-mile and 13.1-mile runs that will showcase the beauty and the history of the Lowcountry, featuring Hampton Park, The Citadel, The Battery, Iconic King Street, and a finish at Riverfront Park. Music and performance groups from our local community will be along the course to keep you moving!
The Shrimp and Grits 5K will take place in North Charleston, around Riverfront Park, and run on portions of the official Charleston Marathon course. It will share the same finish line as the Marathon, Half Marathon and Youth Marathon.
After completing your race, join us for our post-race party adjacent to the finish line near Riverfront Park! In addition to live music and awards, we’ll have plenty of food and drinks for all participants. Attached to each marathon, half marathon and 5k bib will be one ticket for shrimp and grits and two tickets for beer and mimosas (ages 21+). There will also be a family fun area, with bounce houses and entertainment for the little ones.
All finishers in the marathon, half marathon and 5K will receive a finisher medal!
