Newfound Memorial Middle School
The race takes runners along the roads that lead out from and back into Bristol around the shoreline of Newfound Lake, the 4,106-acre lake that has helped make this small town a popular spot for summertime outdoors recreation, for swimming, boating and fishing on the lake to hiking and camping in the hills and mountains that surround its 22 miles of shoreline — the town’s population typically doubles in the summer, city officials say, from its usual 3,300 residents to more than 6,500 in the peak vacation months.
That helps explain why the lake serves as the route for the race, both for its natural beauty and the ease with which it helps divide up the marathon route for the race.
All races start at 9 a.m. Marathon and 10K racers start on Lake Street in front of the Newfound Memorial Middle School. The course proceeds north on Rte 3A, and the 10K racers turn at the appropriately marked turns and return to the finish at Kelley Park. See Map.
The marathon runners continue on 3A north to North Shore Road (8.3 mi) and turn left toward and through the village of Hebron and continue straight on to the turnaround (13+ miles). After retracing the route back to Hebron, the course turns south along the west shore of Newfound Lake, rejoining Rt 3A (24+ miles) at which point it retraces the route back to the finish line turning left on to Union St., right on to North Main and right to the finish at Kelley Park.
Half Marathon will start beyond Sculptured Rocks.
