About The Funky Monkey

The Funky Monkey Half Marathon in Seekonk, Massachusetts is a unique and fun race for experienced runners and newbies alike. Held on 6 August 2023, the course takes you through some of the most beautiful scenery that New England has to offer.

After looping around North Main Street, you will finish up with a flat stretch down South Main Street until crossing through the finish line at Liberty Square.

August typically brings warm weather to Massachusetts but can also bring rain or storms so be prepared with appropriate clothing for all conditions! The crowds along the course are usually quite friendly and encouraging; many spectators come out just to support their local athletes who are running in this event every year!

What makes this race special is its emphasis on inclusion for all abilities – from elite level racers who compete for cash prizes to casual joggers interested in completing their first half marathon experience – everyone is welcome here! The organizers also host additional events throughout Race Day such as music performances during pre-race warm ups or post-race celebrations featuring food trucks serving up delicious eats after participants have crossed the finish line.
