-) 2018 Loco Marathon & Half Marathon:
The 5th Annual Loco Half & Full Marathon is returning to Newmarket, NH on Sunday, October 28, 2018 for another beautiful day of fall running through southern New Hampshire! Looking to qualify for the Boston Marathon®? This course is flat and fast, making it one of the easier qualifying marathons in New England!
The race starts and finishes at the Rockingham Ballroom in Newmarket. There are just the right number of flat sections, a few rolling hills to help you use different muscles, and a spectacular 3-mile section on the Rail Trail. The first three miles are rolling and take you down a shaded road to Lee, NH. Next up is an almost totally flat section until Mile 5, after which there’s a gentle incline into Epping where you’ll likely see a pair of Clydesdale horses grazing in the field as you pass Clarke Farm.
You’ll then run through Newmarket and up a small hill before heading out onto the last 3-mile stretch on the beautiful Rail Trail. It’s relatively flat with almost imperceptible gradual downhill sections, so take some time to look around and enjoy the views of beaver ponds and unspoiled forests!
Parking for the runners and spectators is FREE and will be in the Newmarket Industrial Park, 5 Forbes Road, Newmarket, NH 03857. The lot is 1 mile from the Start/Finish at the Rockingham Ballroom.
We’ll provide a free shuttle service between the lot and the Start/Finish.
There is no parking at the Rockingham Ballroom or golf course. Also, please do not park on Ash Swamp Road or Route 108. Cars parked illegally will be towed!
