Description

This running road race is being proudly sponsored by the American Legion Post 215 & honorably dedicated to WWII Coast Guard Veteran, Master Chief Petty Officer Maurice Poulin. Master Chief Poulin served his country all around the world during WWII and back home including serving at Nahant's Historic Lifesaving Station. Learn more about this local hero here.

All proceeds of this race will benefit the Nahant American Legion Welfare Committee whose mission is to support veterans and families during illnesses or other special needs and a  special building fund to support the replacement of the ocean-facing Boat Room Doors at the Lifesaving Station. 

The 1 Mile Kid Fun Run/Walk will start at 1:30pm

The 5 Miler race will start at 2:00pm

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 exception, of course, the 2-mile-in HOOMPA Nickel Hill, a lactic acid burning sea creature that turns most legs into jellyfish. The last mile is an ego-building body surfing downhill to the historic Nahant Life Saving finish line.
