Join us for the inaugural running of a great idea, a December Half Marathon in New England. Located at the prestigious Atkinson Country Club, this event is just minutes from the Mass border and Salem, New Hampshire. Enjoy a spectacular venue, the Atkinson Resort and Country Club situated on a beautiful hill overlooking the rolling hills of 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!
THE COURSE: What’s not to like? This 13 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.
Hot Cocoa Rest Stop: Tired of gumming down your energy gel on long races? Try our hot cocoa rest stop.. Yes, you will have to walk a bit to drink a small cup of not-too-hot cocoa. But 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.
