Sledgehammer Half Marathon, 10-Mile & 5k

Saturday, February 1, 2020

The Sledgehammer beach run is held to honor the memory of E.B. Sledge and All Combat Veterans. "Sledgehammer" was a lifelong Marine who spent the remainder of his post war years coming to terms with what he and his fellow combatants experienced during World War II. His memoir, "With the Old Breed at Peleilu and Okinawa," was used as a reference for Ken Burns' PBS documentary, "The War," and Tom Hanks and Stephen Spielbergs' HBO miniseries "The Pacific." It is with this in mind that a portion of the Sledgehammer Race Series proceeds will benefit the Semper Fi Fund. The race takes place along beautiful North Topsail Beach. This is the first official race of the 2020 JOSC Race Series!
