The course starts at the Senior Center on the edge of the town forest along Mayflower Street, originally an ancient Indian trail. The gentle hills prepare you for Bay Road, 2 miles of "heartbreak" hills, and water vistas. You'll enter "downtown" Duxbury and circle around Standish Shore, running along paths the Pilgrims walked on Captains Hill. Captain Myles Standish (the monument) will point the way to the Shipbuilders District and scenic Washington Street. Catch your breath, you have only 4 miles to finish!
This route gives you a bit of everything from scenic vistas, beautiful flats and challenging hills. This community fully supports the runners offering you orange slices, jelly beans, water stations and good cheers.
Start at Duxbury Senior Center, take Mayflower to East St, to Elm St, Oak St, Parks St, Bay Rd to Halls Corner, Standish St loop, Halls Corner, Washington St, Surplus St, Depot St, Halls Corner, Chestnut, Tremont St to finish back at Duxbury Senior Center.
