Runners are set to follow an out-and-back course for the Newburyport River Run Half, which starts and finishes along Merrimac Street in front of Cashman Park. From there, the course heads southeast along Merrimac and Water Street, heading through town and making what is roughly a big figure-eight loop down to Newbury. The second half of the race heads back into Newburyport, with long stretches along High Street and Merrimac before finishing back at the park.
