One of New Hampshires Most Scenic

Half Marathons

Home and Registration

This year we are excited to celebrate our 12th annual Elijah’s Race. Elijah started this race in 2005 to benefit the students of Monadnock  Regional High School . He was an elementary Physical Education teacher in  the district and a coach for the track team. He grew up in Swanzey and was an all-star athlete for MRHS. His life was cut short just days prior to  his 3rd annual Swanzey Covered Bridges ½ Marathon. Local community members and school booster members took over the race organization. His dream continues with having a race on Labor Day weekend that benefits the  students of his alma mater.

Run through four scenic covered bridges on your way to completing a 13.1 mile loop in Swanzey, NH.

The Relay’s first leg is 6 miles through 3 of the covered bridges and the 2nd leg continues the last 7.1 miles through the 4th covered bridge.  

Transportation will be provided to and from relay transition point. 

So come spend the day with us, Sunday, September 3, 2017.
