Join thousands of runners and spectators at New England’s fastest, flattest, and most scenic road race where you celebrate your finish with a huge party featuring Smuttynose craft beer, Stonyfield yogurt, lobstah rolls, clam chowdah, and live music!

Event Start Location
Ashworth Ave and B Street

Course Description
Half: The course begins with two thrilling loops around downtown Hampton Beach with thousands of spectators cheering you on. It then heads north on Ocean Boulevard right along the beach and then 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 at the famous Sea Shell Stage for a well-deserved party!
5k: The course is comprised of the first 3.1 miles of the half marathon course, which means you’ll be cheered on by thousands of spectators as you run beside the beautiful Atlantic ocean.

Post Race Activities
We know you’ll be hungry after you run, so all runners get treated to a smorgasbord of food, including lobstah rolls, clam chowdah, Stonyfield yogurt, Clif Bars, and vegetarian options. Oh, did we mention you also get at least two pints of Smuttynose craft beer? The best part? It’s all included with the cost of your registration!

Rain or shine.

Both the 5k and the half marathon start at the corner of B Street and Ashworth Avenue. There are three ways to get into Hampton Beach. The usual way is to come in on 101 East directly to the beach, but this event draws over 10,000 runners and spectators so if everyone uses 101 we’ll have a 5-mile backup!

To make this a smooth event for everyone, we ask runners to be prepared to arrive on race-day at 6- 6:30 a.m.. For more options to get into Hampton, please use one of these alternate routes:

Parking can be difficult on race morning, so if you see an open spot, TAKE IT! There are multiple parking options: (A) You can park in paid lots off Ashworth Avenue for $5 – $10. (B) You can park on the street at a meter and pay with coins or card at the automated machine. (C) You can park in any of the State Park lots and pay by credit card.
