Hampton 2012 Course - NEW COURSE - 80% the same as 2011 -
The course for 2012 is about 80% the same as 2011. The course for this year stays in Hampton and does not include the 2 mile stretch in North Hampton. It still remains one of the flattest, if not the flattest 1/2 marathon course in New England. The course starts at sea level and over the course of 6 or 7 miles climbs a total of 115 feet to its highest elevation. There is only one very gradual incline you may notice at mile 5 to 6. the final miles are completely flat by the ocean.
This year the course starts near the Ashworth and makes a small loop of the lettered streets and then heads north of Ocean Boulevard or Rt. 1A following the ocean. It takes the same left onto Winnacunnet and heads inland this time further toward Hampton. The course goes on all rural roads from here till mile 10.5 where it comes back out onto Ocean Boulevard or Rt. 1A and heads south towards Hampton Beach.
Finally you come back to Hampton Beach to the finish at the Hampton Beach and the well deserved after-race party at Ashworth by the Sea.
Directions: Follow race directions
Note: The course is subject to final review and approval by the Hampton Police.
