Great Bay Half Marathon 2012
was this Saturday in Newmarket, NH. I traveled to the race with friends and met more once we got there.
The Great Bay Half Marathon has a well deserved reputation for killer hills.
There are three significant hills and it seems like an endless series of smaller hills. Parts of this race are on country roads out in the woods and some of those roads are dirt. I could actually smell the woods! Some of this race is along the coast where you can see The Great Bay on one side and rolling fields on the other side. Just beautiful.
I thought the race was well-organized and my hat is off to Club Loco for producing another great running experience. My friends and I sat in a great pub on Main street for a little too long and missed the last shuttle bus at 3PM. One of Loco Mike’s crew was kind enough to give us a ride out to the industrial park where parking had been well-organized and coordinated for us runners.
I think most of us will be back next year. If you have never run this race, be sure to put it on your calendar for next year. This race is part of the Will Run for Beer Series.
Have a great day and thanks for reading.
