7th Annual Nantucket Half Marathon
October 8, 2017
Nantucket Island, Massachusetts
This race is one of the most scenic Half Marathon courses on the East Coast! Set on charming Nantucket Island, the route travels through wooded dirt roads (some with short sandy sections!), tree-lined bike paths, and lightly traveled streets with beautiful ocean views. The course is gently rolling but you are never more than a few feet above sea level! Approximately 40% of the course is on dirt roads with a few sandy sections that can be challenging but there are no significant hills. You may run on roads and see parts of Nantucket you never knew existed!
The race begins on Fairgrounds Road near the intersection with Rugged Road. The course will be very well marked and volunteers and/or Nantucket Police will be stationed at every intersection and street crossing.
Words from the racers: “A great race on a beautiful route!”, “A terrific experience…very memorable!”, “One of the most beautiful and well-run races I’ve done!”, “A great race…good vibe, good people, good weather”, “Nantucket Half Marathon has become a fall favorite”, “Cannot wait til next year!!”, and “A nice part of the island I’d never seen before after summering here for more than 30 years!”
