The Ashland Half Marathon is a 13.1 mile course running through picturesque Ashland Massachusetts. The half marathon course at some points running the Boston Marathons traditional route through Ashland and also running parallel to the Subdury River and at others skirting Ashland State Park. The starting line is at Marathon Park on Pleasant Street.


Runners at this fall’s Ashland Half will follow an out-and-back course that starts and finishes in Marathon Park, and from there follow a figure-eight-shaped course along the rural country roads and through residential neighborhoods just outside this town of about 16,000 residents just outside Boston.

The hilliest stretches occur around the middle portion of the race, as runners are making their way around Ashland State Park and the reservoir lake that sits along its southeastern edges.

Much of the course is framed by tree-lined roads, especially the final few miles that bring runners along the edges of the Framingham Reservoir, through City Park and through the neighborhoods along Green, Myrtle and Winter Streets. The last mile is almost all downhill back in to the finish line, where Cordaville Road meets Pleasant Street, near Marathon Park.
