Jump into Spring on this beautiful rural course that runs on the outskirts of Portsmouth and through the historic towns of Greenland and Newington!
The Portsmouth Half features a gently rolling, scenic, and easy course. The race starts at Mercedes-Benz of Portsmouth and makes a short loop through a rural neighborhood and then heads out onto Newington Road with views of the Great Bay Estuary and pastoral farm fields. As you cross the town border into Newington, you experience the serenity of the Great Bay National Wildlife preserve before coming into the village area where you run by centuries-old stone walls and cemeteries. At the turn around you will be treated to views of the Newington Historic district complete with the Old Town Hall. Next you will high five your friends on the out and back section and retrace your steps back to the finish.
Join us after the race on the lawn at Mercedes-Benz of Portsmouth for an after party featuring craft beer from local brewery Henniker Brewing, pizza samples from American Flatbread, delicious Stonyfield Yogurt, and refreshing Hint Water! The best part? Everything is included with your registration!
