The 23rd Annual Eastern States 20 Mile
19th Annual Run for the Border Half Marathon
SUNDAY March 25, 2018 - 11:00 a.m. both events

Kittery, Maine to Salisbury, Massachusetts along the spectacular New Hampshire Seacoast. Seven towns, three states - all in one race! Running The Boston Marathon? The Eastern States is a great final training run!

Just a reminder that Registration will open for the 2018 Eastern States 20 Mile and Run for the Border Half Marathon tomorrow, on Dec 1.

We do hope you will join us on Sunday, March 25 for our 23rd year running along the Seacoast. This is a race for everyone, and a great destination event. Last year we had runners from nearly half the states in the USA in the field. And where else can you run in three different states in one race (or two, in the half marathon)?

Best wishes for good training and racing!

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
