About This Activity

The Wild Half, as with all the CGI Races, has been designed with you the runner in mind. We have run and re-run this course to guarantee you the most beautiful oceanfront course offered in the region. The course begins on the boardwalk at the beautiful Wildwood Convention Center where you continue along the “boards” for about 1.5 miles. The Wildwoods Boardwalk has been named one of the Top 10 American Boardwalks offering unique stores, amusements and beautiful ocean views, so take it all in there is so much to see. As you exit the boardwalk (mile 1.5) and run through North Wildwood, you will continue around the sea wall (miles 2-4 and 7-9) and out over the bridge toward Stone Harbor (miles 4-7). Runners turn around on the bridge and follow the same course back to the boardwalk. Coming back you once again run past the crowds at the Convention Center and exit the boardwalk The next mile takes you down retro Ocean Avenue through Wildwood Crest where the cool mid-century themed hotels, artifacts, fascinating history and bright neon lights bring the Wildwoods Doo Wop experience to life. The last mile is along the paved bike which runs right along the beach and offers stunning ocean views (just when you need them most!). Thousands of spectators will cheer you down the finish chute for a memorable finish and an even more memorable finish festival featuring live music, food and MeMOREY's (when you enjoy all Morey's Piers has to offer). The 5K Race starts after the half marathon and runs down the beautiful boardwalk, turns around and returns on the boardwalk and follows the remaining half marathon course exiting the boardwalk and finishing in front of the beautiful Convention Center. And of course, as with all CGI Races, the course will feature great scenery, live music, well stocked aid stations and a finish line celebration located right in front of the Convention Center
