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.
