Main and Ocean Streets in Hyannis
Michael K. Aselton Memorial Park
The course is extremely picturesque and historical, traveling down Main Street, Hyannis, past historic Hyannis Harbor and the Hy-Line Nantucket Ferries, by the John F. Kennedy Memorial, with a great view of Kalmus Beach and Lewis Bay, through historic Hyannisport, along Craigville Beach and through the charming Cape Cod village of Centerville. Lots of water views!
The race that bears his name is a fitting tribute that takes runners on a scenic route through the streets of Hyannis and Hyannis Port, starting near the intersection of Main and Ocean Streets in Hyannis.
From there, the out-and-back course winds through coastal areas like Kalus Beach, Craigsville Beach and the Hyannis Harbor, and includes views of the John F. Kennedy Memorial, the Kennedy compound on Cape Cod and the villages of Hyannis Port and Centerville.
The course for the race is paved throughout, run on city streets and coastal roadways, and features only gently rolling hills combined with plenty of flat stretches. Though it’s not closed to traffic during the race, organizers report that runners can expect to see only light auto traffic during their run.
The 5K is run in honor of the late Barnstable police officer Michael Aselton, and proceeds from the race will benefit the scholarship fund set up in his name for Barnstable High School students who wish to pursue careers in law enforcement.
