Established in 1993, the New Hampshire Marathon has been described as one of the most beautiful races in New England! The course moves around Newfound Lake during our most spectacular season, peak foliage. Come experience the natural beauty of NH in a small, friendly and community oriented event
One of the biggest annual sporting events in the Newfound Area is the New Hampshire Marathon! The 28th Annual Event is scheduled for Saturday, October 2nd, 9am. We expect over 500 runners will participate in the 26.2 mile run and its fellow events including a 13.1 half marathon, 10K road race & kids race. Not only does the field feature many local runners, but also has attracted runners from 45 different states and 10 different countries.
With the help of their generous sponsors, the NH Marathon has raised and donated over $295,000 since 1995 to local youth-centered non-profit organizations. This event also benefits the local economy by bringing in many athletes and families who support local businesses.
Participants in the 10K run and marathon will begin on Lake Street, in front of the Newfound Memorial Middle School while the Half Marathoners start at Sculptured Rocks in Groton. Downtown Bristol traffic going both ways will be temporarily delayed while runners start out (North Main Street will remain open as a detour). Carroll Brown, aka The Solitary Man, will once again entertain at the finish line at Kelley Park!
A big event means the NEED FOR VOLUNTEERS is greater than ever with many tasks required to ensure the safety of participants, spectators and drivers. Jobs include helping with registration, parking cars, directing traffic, manning water stops along the route and assisting at the finish line. If you would like to be part of this amazing annual event, please contact the Race Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
