The 2016 Marblehead Race Series showcases opportunities for running in Marblehead and promotes the fun and health benefits of running. All races are run by volunteers and benefit worthy charities. Bring your friends to enjoy the competition and camaraderie running through scenic Marblehead neighborhoods.
The 2016 Marblehead Race Series events are run over a variety of routes throughout Marblehead, including a trail race through Wyman Woods. This series gives runners of all ages and abilities the opportunity to not only be recognized for performances in individual races but also for participation in all the races regardless of the rank of the individual finishes. Participants in 8 of the 9 races will be awarded a commemorative hoodie or jacket; those in 7 of the 9 races will receive a commemorative t-shirt and those in 6 of the 9 races will be awarded a commemorative hat. All races support deserving non-profit agencies and charities, so fast times will not only be rewarded in prizes at the race, but will help benefit the worthy programs represented by the sponsors of the races.
