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 and will finish at the beach in Atlantic Beach on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina.
The Inaugural Tuna Run 70 is an amazing, one day relay adventure in which you and your friends Run 70 Scenic Miles to finish at the beach and enjoy tuna and your beverage of choice after a job well done. The Tuna Run 70 begins in the small town of Trenton, North Carolina and will join the Tuna Run 200 Relay for the last 12 legs of that race running the length of one of Crystal Coast’s outer banks from Emerald Isle to Atlantic Beach before finishing at the beach.
Teams for the Tuna Run 200 are generally made up of 4 to 12 people who split 36 legs. The Tuna Run 70 teams are generally made up of 2 to 6 people who split 12 legs. Each team will provide support vans to drop off and pick up runners at designated exchange zones along the race route.
The Tuna Run 200 and Tuna Run 70 are great fun for everyone – you don’t have to be an ultra runner to enjoy it. For a 12 person team in the Tuna Run 200 and 6 person team in the Tuna Run 70 the distances and training are similar to that of a half marathon. However, if you are an ultra runner you will still be challenged.
