About The CHaD HERO

The CHaD HERO Half Marathon race in Hanover, New Hampshire on 15 October 2023 is sure to be a memorable experience. The course will take you through the beautiful landscapes of rural New Hampshire and offer a unique mix of terrain that is suitable for runners of all levels.

Starting at Dartmouth College, runners will make their way down Main Street and into Lebanon, NH where they will begin their ascent up Mt Cardigan – part of the Appalachian Trail. This section offers some great views as you climb up above tree line before turning back towards Hanover and completing your descent past the town green into downtown Hanover. Once back at Dartmouth College, runners finish off with a lap around the track before crossing the finish line!

October in New England can be unpredictable when it comes to weather so it’s best to prepare for anything from sunny skies to chilly temperatures. Average highs during this time are typically around 55F (12C) but lows can dip down below freezing so dressing in layers is recommended! You’ll likely see some fall colors along your route too as trees start changing color for autumn – adding even more beauty to your run!

This race draws quite a crowd every year which means that there’s plenty of support from spectators cheering on runners throughout their journey – especially near popular areas like Downtown Hanover or Mount Cardigan. It also helps bring together fellow members of the community who come out to show their support for local charities such as Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD). Participants often dress up in costumes or wear special shirts/hats while running through town – making this event fun yet meaningful experience not just for those participating but also everyone involved!

Overall, CHaD HERO Half Marathon provides an exciting opportunity for individuals looking to explore scenic parts of New Hampshire while supporting an amazing cause along the way! Whether you’re training hard or simply taking part in something special with friends & family – this half marathon promises an unforgettable outdoor adventure that’s sure worth signing up for!
