The Harborside Half offers runners a beautiful lollipop loop course with scenic views of rural fields, salt marshes, and nature preserves! The race starts at an industrial park in Newburyport (40 Parker Street) with the first mile on flat, wide, and easy roads through the park before heading out onto some of the prettiest roads in the area.
Not only do you get a wonderful day of amazingly scenic running, but you’re also treated to an after-party at Michael’s Harborside Restaurant in downtown Newburyport, featuring panaoramic views of the Merrimack River, FREE bone-warming soup, healthy Stonyfield yogurt, energizing Clif Bars, and bananas. As if that weren’t awesome enough, runners 21+ get tasty craft beer from our friends at Ipswich Ale Brewery! The best part? It’s all included with your registration!
