The 5K begins at Cordage Park, 10 Cordage Park Circle. The race starts around the Cordage Park facility and winds through the main and back roads of North Plymouth to finish running down Water Street and to Plymouth Rock. The course is mainly flat with just a few small hills.
The 10K begins at The Boys and Girls Club, 9 Resnik Road, and begins with a hill challenge through the Industrial Park. From there you will head down Cherry Street and merge with the 5K course right before the 4 mile mark. This will bring you along the waterfront, down Water Street and to the finish line at Plymouth Rock.
The 1/2 Marathon is USATF Certified (#MA12012JK) and begins at College Pond in the Myles Standish State Forest. The first 6+ miles of the course will be run within the State Forest, eliminating all of the old course that ran along Hedges Pond Road and almost all of Long Pond Road. When you exit the Forest you will take a left onto Long Pond Road for approximately 3/4 mile to Jordan Road and continue on the course as it has always been for the 2nd half of the race. This new course is no less challenging as the State Forest has several rolling hills.
