Hamptons Marathon & Half

The Hamptons Marathon is a Boston qualifier with a USATF Sanctioned and Certified course. In addition, both the full-marathon and the half-marathon can serve as a great training run for those runners training for the TCG-NYC, Marine Corps or Chicago marathons. 

Last year runners from 35 states and 6 countries ran the Hamptons. Runners of the Hamptons Marathon will start together with those running the Half and they will finish at the same finish line. The courses provide a flat, fast run through Southampton Village with views of the Atlantic Ocean and Shinnecock Bay.
