About the Race
The course travels among the many old buildings and ruins of Fort Andrews before traveling along a coastal path with picturesque views of Boston, Hull and Hingham Bay. The island has recently undergone a four year restoration and our event will be one of the first to utilize it since the project’s completion. The island has extensive amenities including a visitors center and plentiful restrooms.
This is a rain or shine event. Lunch will be provided to all runners so please feel free to bring a picnic blanket to enjoy lunch and hopefully some great weather. Families are encouraged to attend but for safety reasons only umbrella strollers are allowed.
