Rich Mazzola has been promoting running, cycling, and multisport events for over 20 years and, as an athlete himself, always views his events from the eyes of the participant. In 1999, he co-founded New England’s premier running relay – the Reach the Beach (RTB) Relay – a 200 mile running adventure that traverses the state of NH from the White Mtns to Hampton Beach.
In 2011, the RTB Relay expanded with an event in Massachusetts. Rich designed the 200 mile relay course that lead teams from Wachusett Mountain Ski area to Westport, MA using Horseneck Beach State Reservation as the finish. Struck by the remarkable beauty of this town, he decided to launch an event that provides a firsthand view of the rolling farmlands, vineyards, and endless water views that define Westport.
We hope you enjoy running the Horseneck Half and that it becomes part of your annual running calendar.
