Frosty Half Marathon

Sunday, December 3, 2023 • Raynham, MA • Course Map

Offering “a little bit of something for everyone,” the Frosty Half Marathon is the perfect race for those looking to heat up their December with a half marathon. The race celebrates its 11th annual running in winter 2023.

The lollipop course begins and ends at Raynham Middle School, where runners may also hang out pre-race to avoid the sure-to-be-chilly weather. The half marathon is predominantly run on residential roads throughout the quiet colonial town of Raynham. 

While the course is mostly flat, organizers warn of a challenging hill around mile 10 that is sure to get your blood pumping as you push toward the finish line. 

The race is well-supported, with five aid stops offering water and Gatorade and plenty of traffic control at necessary intersections. 

Once you run, run, Rudolph your way back to the finish line, celebrate with a full breakfast, hot shower, and complementary post-race massage. 

Families are ready to support their runners near the finish.
