Hyannis Marathon - February 22nd
This year marks the 29th anniversary of the Hyannis Marathon, which is being run this year on Sunday, February 22nd. The day's events also include a 5K "Fun Run", a 10K, and a half marathon. Go to their website for race details. This race is a Boston Marathon qualifier race and is capped at 4200 runners. The Hyannis Marathon is a two loop course, which is extremely picturesque & historical along Craigville Beach, Kalus Beach, historic Hyannis Harbor, Lewis Bay, John F. Kennedy Memorial, and the Kennedy Family Compound. The course is paved and mostly flat with a few rolling hills, ideal for a late winter/early spring race.
