Seacoast Half Marathon @ Portsmouth High School
Nov 11 @ 8:30 am – 11:30 am

“Caring for the coast, one step at a time” is the motto of the Seacoast Half Marathon. Each year, the organization donates 100% of the net proceeds to a mindfully selected Seacoast nonprofit organization. The Birchtree Center is honored to be the 2018 beneficiary of the race.

The Seacoast Half Marathon is a well-organized, fast, fun, and safe race that highlights the beauty of New Hampshire’s historic seacoast. Runners and walkers at all ability levels can enjoy themselves while also significantly benefiting our community.

The race starts and ends at Portsmouth High School and goes through the salt marsh and along the rugged Atlantic coast in Rye, NH, as well as through the scenic and historic village of New Castle, NH. All racers receive long-sleeve tech race shirts and medals when they cross the finish line. There are great post-race eats, and cash and merchandise awards for overall and age group winners.

Come and compete in the New Hampshire seacoast’s oldest and best fundraiser half marathon! Note that the Seacoast Half Marathon has sold out every year, so don’t wait until the last minute and risk getting shut out of this classic coastal half marathon! Register today.
