Seacoast Half Marathon Benefitting Cornerstone VNA
The Seacoast Half Marathon is one of the longest-running half marathons in coastal New Hampshire. This year, we are offering a suite of in-person and “virtual” options. The in-person half marathon will, as long as state and local officials permit it, be run on Sunday, October 31. With each virtual option, you decide where to run or walk, and when (between October 23 and October 31).
Event Times: Packet pick-up will open at 7:00 on Sunday, Oct. 31. Walkers will start at 8:00, and runners will start at 8:30. If staggered starts are required, start times will be adjusted appropriately, and all racers will be notified of the change.
Event Location: The Seacoast Half Marathon will start and finish at Portsmouth High School, Portsmouth, NH.
Event Entrance Fee?: $65
Details/Comments: The Seacoast Half Marathon is one of the longest-running half marathons in coastal New Hampshire. The race is unique in that all of the revenue (after race expenses) goes to local non-profit beneficiaries.Traditionally the Seacoast Half Marathon selects a new non-profit beneficiary each year, but this year is different! Since the 2020 SHM transitioned to a virtual event due to COVID-19, and did not produce the same level of fundraising for Cornerstone VNA, the 2020 beneficiary, the SHM Race Committee has decided to continue with Cornerstone VNA as the 2021 beneficiary.Cornerstone VNA is pleased that the SHM has chosen to support those on the front lines of this pandemic again for 2021!
