A half marathon is the perfect warm-up for a full marathon!
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. Come for the race and stay for the unparalleled post-race buffet, from soft pretzels and beer to soups and baked goods. This USATF-Sanctioned event offers the perfect tune-up for a fall marathon as well as a premium event for the destination runner. Hosted over Labor Day weekend, you can snag your newest bling and still be home in time to relax and celebrate the holiday. New for 2019, we are also offering a 5k! Any runner can experience the festive atmosphere with this family-friendly race.
