The Tuna Run 200 is an amazing, overnight relay adventure in which you and your friends Run 200 Scenic Miles to finish at the beach and enjoy tuna and your beverage of choice after a job well done. The Tuna Run 200 begins just outside of Raleigh, North Carolina in Lake Benson Park in Garner (the home of American Idol winner Scotty McCreery) and will finish at the beach in Atlantic Beach on the Crystal Coast.
On Friday morning October 18th, the first flight of teams will start their 200 mile adventure around 6:00 am. Over the next several hours, additional sets of teams will depart on their overnight journey through eastern North Carolina to the beach. Teams will begin arriving at Atlantic Beach around noon on Saturday to conclude their Tuna Run 200 experience with the best post race party you could hope for. We will have tuna and beer and the beautiful North Carolina coast and Atlantic Ocean.
Teams for the Tuna Run 200 are generally made up of 4 to 12 people who split 36 legs. If you have a 12 person team, each person will run three legs over distances varying from 3 – 10 miles. Each team will provide support vans to drop off and pick up runners at designated exchange zones along the 200 mile route.
The Tuna Run 200 is great fun for everyone – you don’t have to be an ultra runner to enjoy it. For a 12 person team the distances and training are similar to that of a half marathon. However, if you are an ultra runner you will still be challenged – especially if you choose a 4 person team.
