    About this event

    WE’RE BACK- WOOHOO, IN PERSON RUNNING TOGETHER, Goodbye Virtual, Hello Actual!

    Welcome to the Duxbury Half Marathon!

    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 and the Alzheimer Programs. The DUXBURY HALF MARATHON event is sponsored by the Duxbury Friends of the Council on Aging.

    One more thing…like us on facebook!

    Lawrence Lynch Corporation Presents
    The 6th and Last Liam Maguire’s Irish Pub Almost 5 Miler
    A New England Runner Pub Series Event
    Hosted by Liam Maguire’s Irish Pub
    Produced by PCB Race Management
    4.9167 Miles, Sunday, May 23, 2021 October 3, 2021 SATURDAY, October 2, 2021 at 9:30 am,
    Town Hall Square, Falmouth, MA


    fitz47PCB Race Management is proud to stage the 6th Annual Liam Maguire’s Irish Pub Almost Five Miler. But Alas, all good things must come to an end. So this year will be the LAST ANNUAL Liam’s! The PCB Race Management team has cast aside their walkers, wheelchairs and bibs, fortified themselves with Beer and Geritol against numerous infirmities of mind and body and decided to do it ONE MORE TIME!!! It will not be a wake, but a celebration! ON TOP OF THAT we are proud to once again be part of the New England Runner Pub Series, despite the postponements! That’s what got this thing started, and it stimulated us to postpone our retirement!!
    Liam’s will again be held in Falmouth, MA on an almost breathtakingly beautiful course. Before and after the race, celebrations of the sport will held at Liam Maguire’s Irish Pub and other venues. The race will again be limited to almost 500 runners (499 precisely). So plan on registering early!

    HUGELY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!:
    Because of the uncertainty about the Coronavirus Pandemic, PCB Race Management decided in March 2020 to postpone the Last Almost Annual Liam Maguire’s Irish Pub Almost Five Miler to May 23, 2021 October 3, 2021 SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2021.

    You would not be out of line to ask “Why do you keep changing the dates?” As every politician says, when asked a tough or logical question, “That’s a good question; Glad you asked it…” Hopefully we have some better answers like — “The Pandemic made us do it!” “Liam’s made us do it!” “The Town made us do it!” “Oh, And the Devil did too…”
    Rather than outright cancellation, we opted to postpone. While encouraged by the creation of a vaccine, we hope to hold the event safely in the manner it has traditionally been staged. The FINAL (we hope) change from Sunday, 10/3 to Saturday 10/2 was driven by Liam’s availability.

    Please take care of yourself and your loved ones and stay safe!

    Russ Pelletier (P), Jack Carroll (C), and Court Bird (B)
    PCB Race Management

    Registration is now open.
    If you signed up for Liam’s before the race was postponed in March 2020, your registration will be valid for this October’s event. You will not have to re-register, but we have made you a year older, at least! If you can’t remember if you have already entered, please go to our Race Entry Search page. If you have moved, changed your email address, phone, club affiliation, etc, please let us know by email to [email protected].
    If you registered in 2020 and you can’t run Liam’s on OCTOBER 2ND2021, send us an email to [email protected] requesting a refund during the two-week window beginning on April 19th and ending on May 3rd. We will refund the full amount of what you paid. Make sure you check your calendars at that time, because after that two-week window, we will revert to our normal “no refund” policy.

    Registration Procedure:

    • You may register on-line or by downloading an application and mailing it to us with a check for the entry fee which again this year has been kept at a penny-pinching $34.99 (Almost $35.00)! And as an added bonus, if you register on-line, we even even eat that annoying extra processing charge, which other races tack on at check-out! What’s better to like than that! Registration re-opened on Monday, April 19 at noon. The new date of the race is Saturday, October 2.
    • Almost 500 runners (499, precisely) is the limit.
    • All preregistered runners will be emailed their bib number assignments and race weekend information, including times and places for packet and bib number pick-up, beginning a week to 10 days before the race.
