Welcome to the Cheap Half Marathon! Green Stride and the Salisbury Beach Partnership, Inc. is proud to present the Cheap HALF Marathon on June 17th in Salisbury, MA! With much success of the Cheap Marathon, we've been working to create an event that appeals to a larger running crowd. This is an all ORGINIAL (non-looped), beautiful, flat course that starts and finishes at Salisbury Beach center, right where all the fun action is. In addition to the half, we will offer a 5K and 10K (same pricing) for those wanting a shorter distance. For a short period of time get in for only $1 a kilometer ($21.09)! Standard pricing, if available, will be $25. Get ready.....this is EXCITING!
We offer a safe, well organized race course, a CHEAP finishers ribbon, minimal finish line food....and thats it.....with the price to match. Of course, plenty of water along the course.
We DO offer an optional tshirt and hat that you may add on through registration.
About the Course: If you have run the Seacoast Running Fest in the past, then you have run this course. We will have maps up shortly on our website. The half marathon course starts and finishes right where the pavement begins at the beach on Broadway in Salisbury. You will follow Beach Rd and pass through Salisbury Center before crossing on to Mudnock Rd and onto the Salisbury Marsh Trail. You will run this trail right up until the Merrimack River where you will turn under the Newburyport Bridge. After the bridge you will go onto Rings Island and follow Ferry Rd back to Beach Rd. As you are heading back to the beach, you will turn inside the Salisbury Beach State reservation for a full loop inside and then return to Beach Rd for the finish. The entire course if FLAT.
