About This Activity

This running road race is being proudly sponsored by the American Legion Post 215 & honorably dedicated to WWII Veteran, Francis "Cully" Cullinan. Cully was a larger than life fixture in Nahant, a town that he dearly loved.

All proceeds of this race will benefit the Nahant American Legion Welfare Committee whose mission is to support veterans and families during illnesses or other special needs.

The 1 Mile Kid Fun Run/Walk will start at 1:30pm

The 5 Miler race will start at 2:00pm

This breath taking HOOMPA Nickel road race course flows along 5 miles of coastal beauty, with long stretches of mild uphills and downhills scattered throughout the coastal outline of Nahant, and with the exception of course, the 2 mile-in HOOMPA Nickel Hill, a lactic acid burning sea creature that turns most legs into jellyfish. The last mile is an ego building body surfing downhill to the historic Nahant Life Saving finish line.
