Spectator Info
Being a loop course, the New Bedford Half Marathon is a great spectator race. People will have ample opportunity to watch the race in progress. Spectators can watch the beginning of the race on Purchase Street, walk down Union street to approximately the five mile mark (Rockdale Ave) and then walk back to the finish. See the above map for the course information.
Another place for spectators is at the top of the County Street hill (around the 12.2 mile mark) – from this vantage point spectators will appreciate the make-or-break point for the runners as they near the end of the course.
Many make this trek between the start, the five mile mark and return to catch the County Street hill, then the finish on Purchase Street.
This event currently has no reviews, why not be the first? You could help someone find their perfect event.
