About This Activity

Want to run one of the most scenic and flat courses in Newburyport? Choose to run the Newburyport half marathon this year. This race starts and ends a few blocks from historic downtown Newburyport. The course travels along scenic Water Street which offers great views of the Merrimac River. Approximately 4 miles into the run you will pass through the beautiful marshes of Newbury, past farmland and then out through historic High Street lined with mansions of Newburyport. Trace your steps back to the finish line, and you’ll be greeted by cheering fans, family and the great sounds and energy at the Finish Line Festival. It’s a race that can’t be missed! The race will start and finish at 260 Merrimac St. in Newburyport, MA
