THE HALF MARATHON AND 5K ROAD RACE
Experience running in one of America’s oldest towns. Dover, New Hampshire is home to historic neighborhoods, quaint tree-lined streets, and beautiful waterfront views. The Cochecho Challenge is the only half marathon in the city, and it captures the beauty of the terrain as well as the strength of the community.
