5K Road Race and Half MerryThon - or both races back-to-back!
Whether you're just hitting the road for the first time or already passionate about the sport, our races provide fun, festive and competitive events where everyone is welcome. Come enjoy beautiful ocean views as you run along the scenic coastline on Cape Ann and race towards our huge finish line arch!

The Holiday MerryThon Race Series is a totally unique race concept. Celebrate the holidays with two challenging races that will push you to test your own limits. Run either race or both races back-to-back!

Racers are sure to meet new friends as well as fierce competitors along the way. Finish the 5K Road Race, grab some water and return to the starting line for the half merrython! Compete in the Happy Holidays 
races to qualify for coveted prizes that will be the envy of friends and are sure to earn bragging rights in the running community.

Participate in either of the MerryThon races and earn a YuKanRun.com technical race shirt. Complete the half merrython and earn a custom finisher's medal. Runners that complete both of the MerryThon races  will also receive a custom YuKanRun.com winter runner’s hat. With all that running, you deserve it!
