NO APPLECREST HALF IN 2014!
Sorry, after operating the race for 2 years we decided to remove the race from the 2014 calendar. We have plenty of other races for you to consider here.
Looking for an early Fall Half?
What better way to celebrate Fall with an early September half marathon! Make a day of it and bring the family to New Hampshire’s oldest and largest apple orchard. Located less than an hour from Boston on the New Hampshire Seacoast you won’t want to miss this fun-filled event.
About The Applecrest Half:
The half marathon course starts and finishes right on the Applecrest Farm grounds. You will run on all rural back roads in Hampton Falls and Kensington New Hampshire. Your registration includes a wicking technical race shirt made by Green Layer (100% recycled fabric) and custom medals to all finishers.
The course is rolling country roads and doable for just about any runner or walker. At the finish you will be treated to home-made apple pie with home-made ice cream, Applecrest’s famous apples, pressed cider, Stonyfield yogurt and Smuttynose Beer.
The Half Marathon course is certified, well marked and accurate. It travels 100% on rural New Hampshire roads.
Time to go Apple Picking!

About Applecrest Farm
Applecrest Farm remains as New Hampshire’s oldest and largest apple orchard. It’s the oldest continuously operated orchard in America. Four generations of the Wagner family have worked this land, dedicated to their simple mission of sustainably growing the finest fruit and vegetables available.
Discover a bounty of grown-on-the-farm delights, including over 40 varieties of apples, peaches, berries, sweet corn, pumpkins and an array of summer vegetables. Beneath the timbers of a 200 year-old barn, find jugs of all-natural apple cider, made-from-scratch confectioneries (including our famous hot cider donuts) and an array of other locally produced farm goods all for sale.
