For those Cape Cod visitors who wish to release their endorphins into the wild there are plenty of opportunities to do that if running is your thing. Throughout the year there are road races galore on Cape Cod  ranging from short fun runs to marathons, and not to mention the infamous and formidable Nantucket Rock Run – no mean feat (you knew that pun was coming!)  if you complete that one.

Here are my top ten foot punishing runs:

Dennis 5 mile fun run or 3 mile walk – July 26th, 2014 See Details
Yarmouth 5K Seaside road race – October 12th, 2014 See Details
Harwich 5 K fun run – June 21st, 2014 See Details
Harwich Irish Pub 5.25 miles road race – August 2nd, 2014 See Details
Provincetown 10k road race – May 31st, 2015 See Details
Falmouth 7 mile Road Race – August 17th, 2014 See Details
Harwich Cranberry-Fest Half Marathon (and 7.3 miles run) – October 5th, 2014 See Details
Cape Cod Marathon (and 1/2 Marathon) in Falmouth – October 25th/26th See Details
Nantucket Rock run. A grueling 32 mile (approximately) round island race that is not for the faint-hearted or the flimsy-footed – August 30th, 2014 See Details
The Platinum Pebble Dash 5 miles (Turkey-Trot). A very unserious run (loose description)  in aid of Harwich Conservation Trust – Thanksgiving Day 2015

Wherever you choose to run try to take a little time to enjoy the gorgeous Cape Cod scenery through which you’ll pass. Some of the runs showcase some great Cape Cod views.
Safe travels,
