    Race Details

    Duxbury Half Marathon is Now Virtual!

    This pandemic is changing our lives in so many ways.  But we can still run!  We can no longer hold our race here in town on August 29th as we had hoped.  But runners can still train and complete a half marathon run.  Notify us and we will send you your bib and medal.  Please run 13.1 miles, anywhere and any time before Sept. 15, 2020.  Please send us some sort of “proof” of your run (a mileage tracking device photo or similar).   This way you still support our Duxbury Senior Center and all its wonderful programs, both virtual and in person when that time comes again!

    We are also offering refunds or deferrals to our April 3, 2021 race for those already registered.  Send an email to [email protected] by 6/29/20 with any requests or questions.  Also check out our Facebook page to register or for more information.  Have a great “Virtual” run! 

    We’d like to acknowledge our race sponsors who support the Duxbury Half Marathon and the Duxbury Senior Center.

  • 26th ANNUAL RUN TO THE ROCK 5K, 10K & HALF-MARATHON // 9.12.20 // PLYMOUTH, MA.

    5K – 10K – 1/2 MARATHON
    SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2020
    ​7:00 AM – 9:00 AM


    At this time we are planning to hold an in person race on September 12th.  We are following the phased re-opening plan carefully.  Road races are part of Phase 4 which is scheduled to begin on July 20th.  We understand that many people want to run an in person race and we will absolutely do that if both state and local guidelines will allow it.

    We are opening online registration as an in person event with the understanding that at some point we may need to change to a full virtual event.   Please keep all of this in mind when you are registering as we do have a no refund policy.

    Should we be able to hold an in person event, we will also be offering a virtual option for those who would like to participate and support The Boys & Girls Club of Plymouth but are not comfortable participating at an in person event even if guidelines allow.

  • SAMUEL FULLER TRAIL RUN // 10.10.2020 // MIDDLEBOROUGH, MA.

    Our 14th Annual Trail Run is coming up on October 10th, 2020.

    As you would imagine, things are going to look a bit different this year. Here’s what you can expect: 

    LOCATION: (as usual) Pratt Farm,110 E Main St, Middleborough, MA 02346

    RACES: Instead of the 3 races we usually host, this year we will host only the 5K. The race will take place completely within Pratt Farm and cover a very similar course as past years. The course has been reworked so that runners will never be running in opposite directions on the course.

    START: Runners will have a very staggered start: every 10 minutes from 8:00 am (First Start Time) to 5:50 pm (Last Start Time).

    • Runners may sign up with one or more family members or a running partner, but everyone who starts together must run together throughout the whole course.

    • Runners cannot step to the starting line more than 5 minutes before their scheduled start time.

    • Runners may not arrive at Pratt Farm more than 15 minutes before their start time and may not congregate before or after their run.

    • Each runner will receive a number.

    RACE SHIRTS: Each runner who has registered by September 26th will receive a free Race Shirt.

    TIMES will be kept and announced to each runner upon completion of the race. Times will be posted periodically on this website throughout the day so people can check in and see how their times compare with others’ as the day goes on.

    WINNERS in various age groups will be determined the night of the race.

    MEDALS Medals will be sent soon after race day.

    REGISTRATION: $20

    PreRegistration, which includes a Race Shirt, ends on September 26th

    Runners may continue to register through the night of October 8th

  • VIRTUAL BETTER TOGETHER 10K & HALF-MARATHON // 12.10.20 // ANYWHERE, USA

    The idea is simple: when we run together, it’s better.

    Better Together is a virtual race series that focuses on developing a global community through physical movement and charitable donations.

    CHARITY

    Because Better Together believes that better health starts with access to better food, we are proud to donate 10% of proceeds to the Boston, Massachusetts based non-profit, Daily Table, founded by Doug Rauch (former President of Trader Joes). From Daily Table’s website:

    “Daily Table is a nonprofit community grocer dedicated to providing fresh, tasty, convenient, and nutritious food to communities most in need at prices everyone can afford.”

    THE RACE

    The 1st annual Better Together Virtual 10K & Half Marathon will take place on Saturday, December 12, 2020. Participants are encouraged to complete their race any time in the week leading up to 5 pm EST on 12.12.20.

    Registration cut off: Friday, October 9th, 2020

    While keeping in mind the modern health challenges facing our global society, all Better Together events are 100% virtual. As a result, participants are able to create, train on, and run their very own course wherever they want in the world.

    There will be a Zoom post-race cheers at 5 pm EST on 12.12.20 where everyone can come together and celebrate this amazing communal accomplishment!

    TRAINING

    Better Together has assembled a certified Trainer Team of coaches, instructors and nutritionists to help guide each runner to meet their race day performance goals. Runners of all levels are encouraged to sign up, train, and run with people from all over the world!

    To make sure anyone can complete their 10K or Half Marathon goal, upon purchase of entry each participant will receive a 10K or Half Marathon 12-Week Training Program designed by Better Together team trainer, Teddy Cox (CSCS, CPT, FNT).

    As part of this program, the Trainer Team has designed tailored workouts for runners to meet and exceed the end goal of running a long race. These workouts take place at 630 pm EST every Tues-Thurs, are sliding-scale entry ($5-25), and will enable each runner to meet the trainers and other runners.

    COMMUNITY

    With an emphasis on community, participants will have the support of the Better Together Trainer Team (strength & conditioning, yoga, and a nutritionist), and other runners at their fingertips when they join the Better Together slack channel. This is where runners can swap training tips, talk about training, ask trainers questions about their progress, and even generate running playlists to keep everyone motivated!

    So let’s do this! If we all run together, we will be Better Together.
