HOOMPA Nickel 5 Miler Road Race, 5-Mile Walk, & 1 Mile Kids Fun Run

Nahant, Massachusetts

Nahant, Massachusetts

Sat 9th September 2023

3 races

Organiser's Description

All proceeds of this race will benefit the Nahant American Legion Welfare Committee whose mission is to support veterans and families during illnesses or other special needs.
The 5-Mile Walk and the 1-Mile Kid Fun Run will start at 9:30AM
The 5 Miler race will start at 10:00AM
This breath-taking HOOMPA Nickel Road Race course flows along 5 miles of coastal beauty, with long stretches of mild uphills and downhills scattered throughout the coastal outline of Nahant, and with the exceptions, of the 2-mile-in HOOMPA Nickel Hill, a lactic acid burning sea creature that turns most legs into jellyfish and then the 4-mil in surprise that jolts you back to reality. For just as you were enjoying the oceanview of Swampscott off in the distance, you take a left from Marginal Road onto Ocean and see what must be the steepest hill in Nahant (you cannot even see the top as you start up this painful monster). Can you take it? Can you do it? Will you make it? Your reward for cresting this beast is the last mile downhill bodysurfing (or suffering?) to the historic Nahant Life Saving Station finish line. Rember this is 5-Miles, not 5k!
