Aderire New Balande Chilly Half Marathon
A beautiful race course through tree-lined residential streets, the leaves turning all different shades of red, gold and orange, and the opportunity to raise money for a worthy cause all combine to make Newton’s Chilly Half Marathon a worthwhile running event indeed
Set for its annual running this year, after last year’s race saw just over 1,200 runners cross the finish line, the Chilly Half Marathon follows an out-and-back route that starts and finishes at Newton’s Newton South High School, where runners gather inside before the race start so they won’t have to wait outside too long in the cold before they get started.
Organized by the locally based Fattman Productions — which also stages the Newton 10K Run in June and the Bill’s Pizzeria 5K in October — the Chilly Half Marathon is designed both to offer runners a chance to run along some of the signature racing areas the Boston and Newton areas are known for (like Heartbreak Hill, the legendary stretch of the Boston Marathon course that runners in the Chilly Half get the chance to run downhill).
Punti salienti del corso
The race itself takes runners through some of Newton’s most scenic neighborhoods and roads — the city was ranked #3 by Money Magazine among its top 10 places to live in the U.S. for 2010 — from Chestnut Hill Village up past Crystal Lake, and crossings over both Boylston Street and Beacon Street.
Runners also pass a number of local city parks along the way and get a chance to run past the campus of Boston College, when they’re making their way along Commonwealth Avenue between mile markers 8 and 9.
The home stretch of the course brings runners back southward along Lake Avenue, Clark Street and Parker Street — along the route they ran in the opposite direction early in the race — and back toward the high school for the race finish.
