Rescue Run for Marine Mammals

SSC Marine Mammal Rescue
570 Ocean Blvd
Rye, NH 03870

The Rescue Run: Race for Marine Mammals features a popular 5k chip-timed trail race and un-timed walk through Odiorne Point State Park. Our popularrRace follows the 5k cross-country trail route created by Jennifer Shultis, captain of Team Eastern Mountain Sports, 2006 US Adventure Racing National Champions. You’ll run through the forest, by the rocky shore, across a sandy beach, and alongside historic military fortifications.

The first 175 registrants for the 5k receive a free official wick-wear race t-shirt. Race shirts will be available for purchase for $12 day-of, while supplies last. Prizes are awarded in age and gender categories from 6 to 60+, as well as overall fastest male and female for the 5k (must run in the <8 min. pace/mile to qualify for overall winner). The Kids Fun Run features a 300-yard dash and a half-mile run for children ages 12 and under. Every child that participates in the Fun Run wins a prize! Following the race, enjoy a light runner’s breakfast, music, fun ocean-themed activities, and even a mock seal rescue for the kids! Whether you plan to race, run or walk the 5k with a group of friends or your family, you can choose a team name and register as a team at a discounted price. Teams must have 5 or more participants. We encourage you to get creative with matching costumes and fanfare! Please remember that dogs are not allowed in Odiorne Point State Park. Strollers are not permitted on the 5k trail. Children, age 12 and under, must be accompanied by an adult on the 5k.
