This breath-taking HOOMPA Nickel Road Race course flows along 5 miles of coastal beauty, with long stretches of mild uphills and downhills scattered throughout the coastal outline of Nahant, and with the exceptions, of the 2-mile-in HOOMPA Nickel Hill, a lactic acid burning sea creature that turns most legs into jellyfish and then the 4-mil in surprise that jolts you back to reality. For just as you were enjoying the oceanview of Swampscott off in the distance, you take a left from Marginal Road onto Ocean and see what must be the steepest hill in Nahant (you cannot even see the top as you start up this painful monster). Can you take it? Can you do it? Will you make it? Your reward for cresting this beast is the last mile downhill bodysurfing (or suffering?) to the historic Nahant Life Saving Station finish line. Rember this is 5-Miles, not 5k!
