* Our Online Registration Partner is Race

* A portion of your online registration processing fee goes to Race Roster’s affiliate ‘Adventure Advocates’ in support of their Event Cancellation Program. This protects the registrants from race cancellation due to certain catastrophic weather events or geo-political events. For more information feel free to contact:

* During the registration process, Race Roster will offer you the ability to purchase additional race registration coverage, called RegShield. RegShield offers you protection should you not be able to participate in the 2023 Half Marathon. This supplemental insurance may be of value, due to the fact the New Bedford Half Marathon has a NO REFUND and NO DEFERRAL POLICY.

Covid Policy

As of October 18, 2022, the New Bedford Half Marathon has no requirements related to vaccination or negative testing status for Covid-19 in relation to the 2023 New Bedford Half Marathon.

This is subject to change based on Federal, State or Local guidance, outside of the control of the race committee. If there are any changes, they will be communicated to all registered runners and listed on our social media platform for those, who may intend to register.

3-Hour Course Time Limit

In accordance with the City Council who has allowed us to close the city streets during the race, and in the spirit of participant safety, there is a 3-Hour time limit for the New Bedford Half Marathon. Participants failing to make the 7 mile mark in under 100 minutes will be safely diverted and the race will be shortened for them. Runners passing the 7 mile mark in under 100 minutes who begin to slow down and are not able to finish in 3 hours will be offered transportation to the finish line.
