About this event

Welcome to the Duxbury VIRTUAL Half Marathon

May 1- May 31, 2021!

We are starting "virtual" this year the month of May, BUT, fingers crossed, we are hoping to have our annual "taper run" Duxbury Half Marathon for the Boston Marathon (2 weeks before BAA event). SO...

stay tuned!

WE ARE AN OFFICIAL USATF CERTIFIED COURSE! WOOHOO-

Runners return year after year, and here's why!

Join us for a run through the scenic, historic village of Duxbury. The course starts at the senior center on the edge of the town forest along Mayflower Street, originally an ancient Indian Trail. The gentle hills prepare you for Bay Road, 2 miles of "heartbreak" hills, and water vistas. You'll enter "downtown" Duxbury and circle around Standish Shore running along paths the Pilgrims walked on Captains Hill. Captain Myles Standish (the monument) will point the way to the Shipbuilders District and scenic Washington Street. Catch your breath, you have only 4 miles to finish! This route gives you a bit of everything from scenic vistas, beautiful flats and challenging hills. This community fully supports the runners offering you orange slices, jelly beans, water stations and good cheers. Most importantly your registration fee benefits the Duxbury Senior Center's programming including the Alzheimer Programs. The DUXBURY HALF MARATHON event is sponsored by the Duxbury Friends of the Council on Aging. This year all runners will receive an embroidered runners hat and cross the finishline, you get your medal! One more thing...like us on facebook!
