Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Get Ready To Rock!

The 13th Annual Smuttynose Rockfest Half Marathon & 5k is returning to Hampton Beach, NH on Sunday, October 4, 2020 for another day of rocking and running! Join thousands of runners and spectators at New England's fastest, flattest, and most scenic road race where you celebrate your finish with a huge party featuring Smuttynose craft beer, Stonyfield yogurt, lobstah rolls, clam chowdah, and live music!

As you know, the United States has seen a continued surge in COVID-19 cases that unfortunately shows no signs of slowing. Although we had hoped to produce the Smuttynose Rockfest Half Marathon & 5K next month, we’ve deemed the risk to our staff, our volunteers, our runners, and the local community that hosts our event to be too great to conduct the event this year.

However, with your support and understanding, Loco Races will survive the pandemic and return better than ever next year. If you were registered for this year’s event, please check your email for more information about your 2020 event registration.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to [email protected]. We anticipate a high email volume, so response times may be delayed, but we’ll reply as soon as possible.

On behalf of the Loco Races team, we thank you for your understanding during these trying times, and we look forward to getting out there and running with you virtually in 2020 and in-person next year.
