Runners start Ashland’s Marathon Park Prep Half Marathon at Marathon Park on Pleasant Street, the original starting line of the Boston Marathon when it was run back in 1897. From there, runners head south and east past Wildwood Cemetery and Ashland High School, and then follow a big loop section for several miles that takes them around Ashland State Park. After that, the last few miles take them past City Forest before heading back to the park for the race finish.
