READ MORE:

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Marathon Madness ran all over new Hanover county this morning at the Quintiles Wrightsville Beach Marathon.

Since it began in 2010, it has become one of the biggest events in Wilmington.

Thousands of runners took the course starting at Wrightsville beach and ending in the Mayfair shopping complex.

Nine stations were set up along the way for runners to grab water or gatorade and a little encouragement.

The Pink Ladies set up camp at the UNC station.

Pink Lady Melissa Ellison said, "It really makes you feel good cause when you see them running through a lot of people give out. A lot of times it's their first time and when you call their name or yell at them you can just see them light up and start running more. It's just an inspiration."
