Massachusetts > Hyannis Marathon, Half Marathon & Marathon Relay
Hyannis, MA • Sunday, February 24, 2013 • Course Map
The beautiful waters of Cape Cod Bay and the Nantucket Sound form the
backdrop for this marathon, half-marathon and 10K road race event in
Hyannis, Mass., an exclusive Northeastern resort perhaps most famous as
the home of the Kennedy family for the past several generations.
race itself, which is paved throughout and mostly flat with just a few
hills, takes runners on a tour of the town’s many beaches and
historic sights, including the John F. Kennedy Memorial.
From the starting line downtown at the Sheraton Hyannis Resort Hotel on
Scudder Avenue, the race winds through city streets and past the waters
of nearby Craigville and Kalus Beaches, as well as Hyannis Harbor and
Lewis Bay. In the second half of the half-marathon, the course
continues past the JFK memorial, the Kennedy Family Compound and the
villages of Hyannisport and Centerville, which look out onto the
gorgeous Nantucket Sound.
Because of its lack of elevation changes, organizers say the course is
considered ideal for those looking to set personal record times. And
though it's not closed to traffic during the race, the half marathon course
usually sees “very light” traffic during the event, they add. Runners also are encouraged to sign up early for the event, as the half marathon is limited to 2,500 entrants.
