Newburyport Half Marathon 2011The purpose of the Newburyport Green Stride Half Marathon is to give the greater Newburyport running and athletic community the opportunity to participate in a distance race that has recently been considered the most desired type of race to compete in.

Along with providing a fun and successful sporting event, it is our goal to help promote awareness of all the benefits to living in a green community and achieving an eco-friendly lifestyle as well as raising money for a local charity.

The Green Stride Eco Theme

The Green Stride Half is a first of its kind.  Aside from the race, we are going to educate our audience of runners and spectators on all the different ways to living a healthy and green lifestyle.  Whether its recycling, organic foods, low emission standards or anything else that centers around green priorities, the Green Stride Half wants to help promote these organizations.

The goal is to give local companies that have a green initiative within their business plan free exposure during the event.  Space such as a 10‘x10’ booth will be allocated for each company on the grounds of the NEBC for people to pass by and visit.  Companies both large and small are all welcome to participate in this event.
