About The Run to the Rock
The Run to the Rock Half Marathon in Plymouth, Massachusetts is a must-do for any avid runner looking for an unforgettable experience. Taking place on September 9th, 2023, this half marathon takes you through some of the most beautiful and historical sites that Plymouth has to offer.
Starting at Pilgrim Memorial Park, runners begin their 13 mile journey along the waterfront of Plymouth Harbor with views of some of the most iconic sights that New England has to offer. The course continues inland taking participants past picturesque farms before finally heading back towards central Plymouth where they can get a glimpse of America’s oldest town square as they make their way towards Burial Hill. This challenging hill leads competitors up one last challenge before they cross the finish line in front of Mayflower II – a replica ship commemorating those who first arrived in America over 400 years ago.
Runners will be able to enjoy perfect weather conditions during this time period as temperatures are typically mild and comfortable with moderate humidity levels. Early morning fog often gives way to sunny skies which makes for ideal running conditions throughout the entire course. Participants should also expect large crowds cheering them on from start to finish making it an incredibly exciting event for all involved!
The Run To The Rock Half Marathon offers something special for everyone – from experienced racers looking for a challenge or beginners wanting to literally explore history firsthand! With scenery showcasing some of America’s earliest settlements along with historic landmarks such as Burial Hill and Mayflower II there truly is nothing else like it out there!
