Hat Trick and Five & Dime

Earn up to (5) five stunning medals! Disney has the Goofy and Dopey Challenges, we have the Five & Dime (5K + 10K = 9.3 miles) and the Hat Trick (5K + 10K + Half Marathon = 24.4) !


Half Marathon

The Half Marathon takes runners on a tour of a classic New England community. Starting and finishing on the picturesque campus of Merrimack University, runners will pass through beautiful downtown Andover and its surrounding, charming neighborhoods, on their way to completing 13.1 miles. With timing clocks at every mile, and cheer zones scattered throughout, runners can race against the clock and enjoy themselves every step of the way. Water stations and portable toilets are located roughly every 1.5 miles to ensure runners have a safe and enjoyable running experience.


5K & 10K

For those running to beat the clock, for fun or for the first time; the 5K and 10K distances are for you. The routes meander through the historic neighborhoods around Merrimack campus. The 5K offers runners a fast, one-loop course through the back roads of Andover, while the 10K features a runner-friendly course with rolling hills, as runners pass by the historic Phillips Academy Andover campus. Water stations, medical stations, and portable toilets are placed appropriately throughout both the 5K & 10K, and are staffed by high energy volunteers ready to cheer on all of the runners.
