The Big Lake Half Marathon takes place on Saturday May 7, 2016. This race begins in Alton, NH and travels along the southwest side of Lake Winnipesaukee with spectacular views of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Runners then enjoy the quiet and forested shoreline before rolling to finish in front of Shibley’s at the Pier in Alton Bay, NH.
Absolutely, we have partnered with Smuttynose Beer, Jordan’s Ice Cream Dominos Pizza, Music and others to create a great after-party. We also provide two free beer tickets for all participants (21 years old and older).
