PORTSMOUTH —Strawbery Banke is holding a “Run Through History” Half-Kilometer run on Sat., January 15 at 1:00 p.m. as part of “Wintertide Portsmouth,” a citywide effort to embrace the cold and activate Portsmouth as a winter city.
A Half-K run? Not a typo! Enjoy 260 years of architectural heritage in one loop of the historic campus, a distance achievable by all! Begin near 1695 Sherburne House and end with a festive finish line is at the 1955 interpretation of the Shapley Drisco House.
• All participants receive a commemorative event sticker and swag bag.
• Historical costumes are encouraged.
• Bring a watch for self-timing.
Registration is $20.00 per person.
Proceeds from the run benefit the Museum’s History Within Reach program. This program provides experiential-learning workshops to economically underserved schools in New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts. These schools would otherwise not be able to afford school trips.
