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 travel past the Parker River Harbor. Circle back around and past beautiful historic houses on High Street. The last half mile of the race takes you down the rail trail, past the Newburyport Harbor and into Cashman Park, where you will be greeted by family, friends and the great sounds and energy at the Finish Line Festival. It’s a race that can’t be missed! The race will start on Merrimac St at the bottom of Oakland St. in Newburyport, MA. The Finish will be at Cashman Park in Newburyport. The after party festivities will take place at Cashman Park.
