What's included

A USATF-sanctioned, out-and-back course, you’ll start at Nantasket Beach in Hull, then move quickly into Cohasset where you’ll follow the rolling hills of iconic Jerusalem Road and Atlantic Avenue while passing Black Rock, Pleasant and Sandy Beaches. A turn at the end of Atlantic Avenue brings you around beautiful Cohasset Cove, passing the Cohasset Harbor Inn and Atlantica, flowing you out to Border Street. Finally, a quiet pass through a shaded neighborhood in Scituate gets you to the furthest point of the course before you loop back and begin retracing your steps, allowing you to soak in those same views, this time from new vantage points.

More information

The 3 Beach Minimum is an incredibly picturesque route, following some of the most scenic coastline the South Shore of Massachusetts– nay, New England– has to offer.We’ve done our share of races in New England and we’re sure this one’s going to rank right up there as one of the most beautiful you’ve ever run!

More information

Ample free parking is available in the DCR parking lots along the beach between [the now defunct] Beachfire restaurant and Lucky Lemons. Note that the only entrance to that entire set of lots is at the south end near Beachfire.

More information

The course will have aid stations approximately every two miles, supplied with both water and lemon/lime Gatorade. Because of the out-and-back nature of the course, three aid stations will cover six different mileage points: Black Rock Beach (intersection of Jerusalem Rd. & Forest Ave., miles 2 & 11) Sandy Beach (miles 3.5 & 9.5) Cohasset Harbor Inn (miles 5 & 8)

Don’t want to make the drive that morning? Or, want to turn this into an end-of-summer weekend getaway? How about both? Consider staying at the Nantasket Beach Resort. Located right along the beach and just steps from the start/finish, this is the perfect place to post up and relieve yourself of all those pesky race logistics.
