Known for being one of the most scenic and popular half marathons and 5K’s in Massachusetts, and considering we’re offering the lowest early bird pricing ever, you won’t want to miss out! 

The 2024 location and course changed a bit and instead of Norwell, the race will be held close-by in Hanover at Hanover Crossing with a new and improved course!
