Set in mid March, the Marathon Park Prep Half 13.1 mile race is the perfect prep race for the Boston Marathon. The MPP Half-Marathon winds its way along a 13.1 mile figure 8 course through the town of Ashland Massachusetts. New this year, we have added a 5-mile race!
The half-marathon course is a mixture of flats and hills, at some points running parallel to the Sudbury River and at others skirting Ashland State Park. The route includes the stretch of the traditional course that Boston’s spring marathon follows through the town of Ashland, about 25 miles west of Boston. The 5K course shares some of these features. With its picturesque and challenging course, its veteran organizers, Squanto Productions of Natick Ma, a spring pre-marathon event competitive runners crave, easy access by public transportation with the Ashland stop on the Boston-Worcester MBTA line just steps away from Marathon Park as well as plenty of free parking nearby.
