The 19th Annual Eastern States 20 Mile
15th Annual Run for the Border Half Marathon
Sunday March 30, 2014 - 11:00 a.m. both events
Portsmouth, New Hampshire to Salisbury, Massachusetts along the spectacular New Hampshire Seacoast. Six towns, two states - all in one race! Running The Boston Marathon? The Eastern States is a great final training run!
Designed as a pre-Boston Marathon training race, the Eastern States 20 Mile (formerly Border to Border) Race has been called "the single best and freshest idea in road running in ten years." Run in three states, through seven towns, all in one race. Starting on the Memorial Bridge in Kittery, Maine, the race runs through historic Portsmouth, along scenic Route 1A overlooking the Atlantic, to the finish in Salisbury, Massachusetts.
If you are looking for a flat fast 20 mile run then the Eastern States 20 Mile is your best bet. "It is one of those races that everyone should do one time or another," says race director Don Allison. The race also fits nicely into the training schedule for those training for the Boston Marathon. Read the rest of this story!
Also! Run for the Border Half Marathon - 11:00 a.m., Wallis Sands Beach, Rye, New Hampshire to the Massachusetts border
Newsflash: We will be awarding race medals to all finishers this year!

We appreciate the support of all those that make this race possible every year and look forward to seeing you all again on March 30, 2014.
