    Daufuskie Island Ultra Marathon

    19janDaufuskie Island Ultra Marathon

    Event Details

    The Daufuskie Island Ultra is back in 2019 with three different distances!

    13.1, 26.2, 39.3 – half-marathon, marathon, triple half-marathon

    The course is USATF certified for 13.1, 26.2 and 39.3 miles, making it a qualifier for other marathons nation-wide.
    The course follows many of the highlights of Daufuskie Island such as Haig Point Lighthouse, Freeport, Daufuskie Marsh Tacky Society, Tabby Circle overlooking the Atlantic and, the famous “Painted Houses” off Driftwood Cottage lane.

    Consider making this a weekend getaway runcation so that you may have time to explore this lovely, rustic island.

    More information will be provided in the coming weeks regarding ferrying over to Daufuskie Island from Hilton Head.

    The beneficiary of this race will be the Daufuskie Island Historical Foundation and the Daufuskie Marsh Tacky Society. Both are 501c-3 non-profit organizations.
    The 2018 race raised $500 for DIHF. We hope to triple that in 2019!

    The top male and female of each race will have their names, race and finish times engraved on bricks which will line the walkway at the Daufuskie island Historical Foundation’s garden.
