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." The race runs through historic Portsmouth, along scenic Route 1A overlooking the Atlantic, to the finish in Hampton Beach.

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
