The Third Annual Portsmouth Half Marathon is returning to the Portsmouth, NH area on Sunday May 5, 2019 for another day of scenic New England running! Join the fun and celebrate your finish with an after party featuring refreshing craft beer!
Jump into Spring on this beautiful rural course that runs on the outskirts of Portsmouth and through the historic towns of Greenland and Newington!
The Portsmouth Half Marathon features a gently rolling, scenic, and relatively easy course. The race course starts at the Lowes parking lot and makes a loop around a Portsmouth avenue neighborhood. Then it heads out onto Newington Road with views of the Great Bay Estuary and pastoral farm fields. As you cross the town border into Newington, you experience the serenity of the Great Bay National Wildlife preserve before coming into the village area where you run by centuries-old stone walls and cemeteries. At the turn around you will be treated to views of the Newington Historic district complete with the Old Town Hall. Next you will high five your friends on the out and back section and retrace your steps back to the finish.
Join us after the race on the lawn at Mercedes-Benz of Portsmouth for an after party featuring craft beer from local brewery Smuttynose, pizza samples from American Flatbread, Hot Chili and delicious Stonyfield Yogurt, and refreshing Hint Water! The best part? Everything is included with your registration!
