The perfect warm-up for a full marathon!
This is your opportunity to experience Dover’s only Half Marathon Road Race, the COCHECHO CHALLENGE. Its a perfect warm-up for a full marathon! First Parish Church created this challenging yet accessible, USA Track & Field certified Half Marathon course that begins and finishes at our historic church in the heart of downtown Dover, NH. After leaving downtown, the course winds through beautiful, rural neighborhoods, crosses over the majestic Cochecho River and then returns to the downtown area for the final push to the finish line. After the race, there will be an awards ceremony, refreshments (Including a beer tent) and some great home made food. Come to participate in the race, but also to enjoy the after party! This is Seacoast, NH running at its finest.
