The Fast Half Marathon in Hamilton, Massachusetts on May 7, 2023 is sure to be an exciting event. The course winds its way through the trails and countryside of western Massachusetts, offering a challenging yet rewarding experience for both experienced and novice runners alike.
The race begins with a flat stretch that allows runners to warm up their muscles before hitting the hills. Once you reach the hills, you’ll face several gradual inclines as well as some steeper ascents – all of which will test your endurance and help you build strength along the way. As you make your way back down these rolling hillsides, take in the stunning views of nearby lakes and forests that await around every corner.

The unpredictable New England climate can bring anything from hot sunshine to chilly rain throughout this time period so it’s important to come prepared for any type of weather!
