The 24th Annual Eastern States 20 Mile
20th Annual Run for the Border Half Marathon
SUNDAY March 24, 2019 - 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!
Congratulations to all who finished the 23rd Eastern States 20 Mile/Run for the Border Half Marathon Sunday. It was cool along the Seacoast, but the views were spectacular and the wind kind to the runners, providing a gentle push toward the finish line in Salisbury. We thank all who participated, and especially thank all of the hardy aid station volunteers, who persevered in the cold to support the field of nearly 1,000. We look forward to seeing everyone on Sunday, March 24 for next year’s race..

We do hope you will join us on Sunday, March 24, 2019 for our 24th 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)?
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!
