The End of Summer Classic

The fifth annual Marathon Sports - End of Summer Classic will be held on Friday evening, August 24th at Bare Cove Park in Hingham, MA. The race is a favorite among runners from around the Boston area because of its uniqueness and the many amenities not typical of medium size races. The event typically attracts over 600 runners.

The entire five mile event occurs within the confines of a conservation area with many water views as it winds along the Back River. In addition to a well managed route with mile markers and multiple water stations, it’s a USATF certified course. This year promises to be even more fun with the addition of some few, new twists.

Some of the features of the 2012 event include:

o RRCA Eastern Regional Championship (plaques in age groups).
o Tech shirts to the first 400 entrants provided by Mizuno.
o Cash prizes (3) in the open category.
o Marathon Sports gift certificates (3) in age groups.
o REI team Challenge (winners take all, REI gift bags).
o The race route can be previewed on
o Bag piper at the start line.
o Vendor expo at the finish line.
o Fast course.
o Gatorade sponsored comfort stations.
o Post race bash featuring food, a free beer, and live music at the nearby South Shore Country Club (1/4 mile from finish line).
