Welcome to the Duxbury Half Marathon!
WE ARE AN OFFICIAL USATF CERTIFIED COURSE! WOOHOO-
Runners return year after year, and here's why!
Join us for a run through the scenic, historic village of Duxbury. The course starts at the senior center on the edge of the town forest along Mayflower Street, originally an ancient Indian trail. The gentle hills prepare you for Bay Road, 2 miles of "heartbreak" hills, and water vistas. You'll enter "downtown" Duxbury and circle around Standish Shore running along paths the Pilgrims walked on Captains Hill. Captain Myles Standish (the monument) will point the way to the Shipbuilders District and scenic Washington Street. Catch your breath, you have only 4 miles to finish! This route gives you a bit of everything from scenic vistas, beautiful flats and challenging hills. This community fully supports the runners offering you orange slices, jelly beans, water stations and good cheers. Most importantly your registration fee benefits the programs at the Duxbury Senior Center and the Alzheimer Programs. The DUXBURY HALF MARATHON event is sponsored by the Duxbury Friends of the Council on Aging.
