Atmark: Cambridge Half Marathon (Nov. 3)
You normally go to CambridgeSide to shop, but the Cambridge Half Marathon uses the mall for a different type of recreation. On Sunday, November 3rd, the shopping center will serve as both the starting and finishing point for the 13.1-mile race, which will direct you all throughout Cambridge’s most famous spots.
As you run the course, you’ll get a glimpse of MIT’s campus, Harvard Square and Harvard Stadium, Riverbend Park, the John W. Weeks Footbridge, and, of course, Boston’s iconic Charles River. The course is relatively flat, which makes it a great place for half-marathon newbies to cut their teeth. Registration is currently $110 and includes a pullover, which you’re welcome to wear on the day of the race, as well as free parking, a finisher’s medal, and complimentary suds from Cambridge Brewing Company at the finish line.
