The event kicks off on Sunday, March 6th in Hampton Beach, NH with both the half marathon and 5k starting at 10:00am. Click a section below for more details.
Start Time: 10:00am
The course begins on the beach at Hampton Beach State Park - at low tide. You will run about 1/2 mile on the beach on hard packed sand then run out of the Hampton Beach parking lot onto Ocean Boulevard. It then heads north right along the Atlantic Ocean and turns inland for a loop on tree-lined roads before coming back out to the ocean at Mile 10. It finishes with a three-mile stretch along the beach, ending back by the Beach between A and B Streets for a well-deserved post-race snack!
All miles are marked with mile markers and all corners have at least one arrow. Race marshals and police will be stationed at any confusing corners.
The course is not measured and certified but it is 13.1 miles.
Start Time: 10:00am
The Hampton 5k is one of the most scenic road races in New England! The course is comprised of the first 3.1 miles of the half marathon course.
