The Northeast Delta Dental Boston Prep 16-Miler & 5-Miler

Calling all runners...

Gearing up to run a marathon this spring? Or, just want to see if those COVID miles are paying off? We've got a race for you! We're excited to bring back the annual Northeast Delta Dental BP Lite 5 Mile and Boston Prep 16 mile road races. Enjoy a scenic run with gentle rolling hills through the back roads of East Derry. Both races start and finish at West Running Brook Middle School in Derry. There will be tech shirts for the first 325 registered runners, post-race food, age group prizes, and professional timing. After the race, celebrate with a FREE BEER at our after-party at the 603 Brewery!


The 26th Running of the Northeast Delta Dental Boston Prep – this moderately challenging 16-miler is ideally scheduled for runners training for the Boston Marathon, any other spring marathon or a runner looking for a mid-winter challenge!
