The Hampton Half Marathon & 5k
With an elevation gain of only 115 feet, the Hampton Half is one of the flattest, fastest and most scenic half marathons in New England. The course begins at C 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.
Join us after the race in the ballroom of the Ashworth By The Sea hotel for an after party featuring craft beer from our friends at Harpoon, steaming hot soup (both minestrone and chicken noodle), delicious Stonyfield Yogurt, and tasty Lindt chocolate! The best part? Everything is included with your registration!
