to our 10th year celebration of the Great Bay Half Marathon and the Beyond The Rainbow 5K.

Sponsored by the Exeter Hospital, this annual race starts in a small New Hampshire mill town bordering on the Great Bay Estuary.

The course is challenging but beautiful as it winds its way along a designated scenic road. The race is large enough to close down the entire downtown for a spectacular finish with thousands of cheering fans.

Since 2007 over 9,000 runners have completed this course with its roller coaster hills, great downtown finish and simply spectacular back roads.



NEW for 2016:

red-jacket Registered Half Marathoners* will receive this nice commemorative  jacket complete with zip pockets, embroidered logo on front and Gone LOCO screen on back. *Must be picked up at number pickup.

Not ready for a Half Marathon? Then try the Beyond the Rainbow 5K.  Get all the fun of a big time race with a lot less work.
