The half marathon race, which starts from the campus of Rockport High School, follows an out-and-back route along the cape’s coastline, much of it along Highway 127A. Runners will pass by and through local parks and beaches along the way, and while there are a few rolling hills on the course, most of it unfolds at close to sea level, as it runs along the cape’s scenic shoreline. The half-way turnaround point lies next to Good Harbor Beach, and then brings runners back along the route they’ve just run to the high school for the race finish.
