The 2019 Cambridge Crab Run is back, and under new management. This year, TCR Event Management takes ownership of the event and has a few small changes.  The Crab Run consists of a half marathon (13.1 miles) immediately followed by a 5k (3.1 miles) run, all from the grounds of Great Marsh Park, located at 0 Somerset Avenue, Cambridge. THE HALF MARATHON COURSE IS AN EXACT REPLICA OF THE EAGLEMAN 70.3 RUN COURSE, perfect for a cooler preview of the course

This race takes you past the Choptank river at the start before rolling out to the country roads of Dorchester County. For our endurance athletes, this is the same course that you will travel for the Ironman Eagleman 70.3 race in June, just about 20 degrees cooler! ;)

If you are looking for a challenge, why not sign up for the KING CRAB challenge? You must complete the half marathon in under 2 hours to make it in time for the start of the 5k. Do you have what it takes to make the time cut?
