Runners, get ready for the trek through downtown Historic Wilmington, North Carolina with a Half Marathon, 10K or 5K on Sunday, November 8th, 2020! The Battleship Half Marathon started in 1998 and is one of the oldest Half Marathons in the South.
Moored in quiet dignity and majesty the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA, across the river from downtown Wilmington, beckons visitors to walk her decks. Envision the daily life and fierce combat her crew faced in the Pacific Theatre during World War II.
From all across our Nation they came, young men who had grown up in the crucible of the Great Depression and now determined to serve their Country in its time of need. These are the men whose stories you will encounter through their oral histories, photographs, and mementos as you experience the Ship and the exhibits.
Step back in time and let history come alive through the crews’ stories. Imagine yourself steering the ship, starting her engines, or even firing the guns. JOIN THE CREW and be a part of Battleship history at the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA! www.battleshipnc.com
