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.
