Course winds through one of twenty Boothbay Region Land Trust Preserves on our peninsula.  The scenery and natural surroundings are spectacular, and the terrain is well maintained, with little elevation.  Please be aware this is a wooded trail, and most ideal for trail runners and/or walkers.

Half Marathon

SEPTEMBER 6TH

Challenging and Scenic:  Truly a one of its kind in Maine, this course offers  miles of water views, from inner harbor, to open ocean, to lakes and  tidal rivers.  It crosses over two islands and a historic footbridge.  It passes by three waterfront parks, (perfect for spectators), and through our waterfront harbor village.

The show that marvels its audience year after year! 
Absolutely everything about this show is sea inspired and original!  From the historic working waterfront venue, to the lobster trap runway that carries dozens of models the length of an enormous boat shed.
