The half-marathon course is a mixture of flats and hills, at some points running parallel to the Sudbury River and at others skirting Ashland State Park. The route includes the stretch of the traditional course that Boston’s spring marathon follows through the town of Ashland, about 25 miles west of Boston.  The 5K course shares some of these features.  With its picturesque and challenging course, its veteran organizers, Squanto Productions of Quincy Ma, a fall event date competitive runners crave, easy access by public transportation with the Ashland stop on the Boston-Worcester MBTA line just steps away from Marathon Park as well as plenty of free parking nearby, the Ashland Half-Marathon & 5K is on track to become a special race and a family friendly event to be celebrated for many years to come. 

The Ashland Sporting Association, a 501©(3) nonprofit incorporated in 2013 and registered in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, will use this years proceeds, to help further rehabilitate Marathon Park and a portion will be donated to the MetroWest YMCA to help sustain the new teen programs for youth who are in middle school, such as Teen Nights for youth in Ashland, Holliston and Hopkinton and HighFlight, an intensive outdoor program for at risk teens.
