Enjoy a spectacular venue; the Atkinson Resort and Country Club situated on a beautiful hill overlooking the rolling terrain of southern New Hampshire.
The Atkinson Resort & Country Club, is a destination facility tucked within 420-acres of meticulously manicured greens and beautiful surroundings. Finish off your year with this festive late Fall half marathon event!
NEW for 2015:
No traditional race shirts* This year we will be providing a very cool fleece race-branded ensemble of LOCO Gloves and a nice fleece headband. * Should you want to purchase a traditional shirt, they are available for $15 when you register or $20 race day.
THE COURSE: What’s not to like? This 13.1 mile single-loop scenic course travels mostly in Atkinson New Hampshire with a few miles in Salem, NH and Haverhill, Massachusetts. The course is run exclusively on rolling rural back roads crossing past conservation land, two small ponds, rolling fields of hay, stone walls, and apple orchards. It’s a beautiful course and doable for all levels.
Hot Cocoa and Lindt Chocolate Rest Stop: Tired of gumming down your energy gel on long races? Try our hot cocoa rest stop, where you can enjoy a small cup of not-too-hot cocoa and some delicious Lindt Chocolate. What a treat to get you through the last few miles!
Finish Party: After the race, come join us inside the absolutely stunning Atkinson Resort and Country Club grand ballroom. You will be treated to hot soup, hot cocoa, Stonyfield yogurt and of course a cold Smuttynose Beer.
