Race Details

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.

The Course

Half Marathon

Start Time: 10:00am

The course begins at B Street and Ocean Boulevard with a loop around downtown Hampton Beach. 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 at the Start for a well-deserved party!

This course is very spectator friendly with great views of the runners at the Start, Mile 2, Mile 4, and at the Finish. 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 measured and certified by the USATF.

5k

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, which means you’ll be cheered on by tons of spectators as you run beside the beautiful Atlantic ocean. After the finish, head on over to the Ashworth By The Sea Hotel for the after-party!

5k runners start alongside the half marathoners at 10 a.m. and also get hot soup and delicious Smuttynose beer (they just get the party started a little earlier)!
