(Chatham, 8 May 2014) - We regret to announce that due to construction on the Mitchell River Bridge, the 2014 edition of the Chatham Harbor Run has been canceled. Rather than compromise the integrity of the Harbor Run with an alternate course, we have decided to defer the race until the course is once again cleared for use. As construction may continue through the summer of 2015, we will post updates here on the status of future races as we receive information from the town and state. We regret any inconvenience and hope that you'll consider some of the other great running events on Cape Cod in June.

(Chatham, 28 April 2013) - Welcome to spring and Chatham in summer! On-line registration is now open for the 35th Annual edition of the Chatham Harbor Run or print out an application and send it via the postal service. This year, proceeds go to the scholarship fund of the newly established Monomoy Regional School District so please come out and support our new schools! See you on June 30th!

- It's time for another fantastic edition of the Chatham Harbor Run, a beautiful seaside tour of Chatham in support of the Chatham High School Scholarship Fund. This may be the last time you run over the Mill River bridge in its wooden form so come run the seaside with us! Registration is now open or print out our application and send it in. We'll see you at the first stop of the East Wind on June 24th!

(Chatham, 27 June 2010) -
A hearty thank you to all who ran and walked the 32nd edition of the Chatham Harbor Run! High heat and oppressive humidity slowed down the field but Taylor Burmeister once again rose to the occasion posting a 33:30 time for 1st overall. The women were led by Karen Friedman of Brewster in 40:57, a time that was good for a 14th overall finish. See you next year! [Walk Results]  [Run Results]

- Welcome to 2010 and the 32nd running of the Chatham Harbor Run! On-line registration is open and we're gearing up for another spectacular 10K along the shore. If you're not in the mood for the 10K or are part of a 10Ker's support crew, consider participating in the 5K walk. We'll see you on the 27th!

(Chatham, 28 June 2009) - Thanks to all who made the 31st annual edition of the Harbor Run and Walk one of our best fields ever.  We got the overcast, rainy and cool as promised but still ended up with enough humidity to drown a Hockomock Swamp Rat!  Still, Taylor Burmeister of Chatham bested the field in a smoking 32:43 to take down road ace Joe Navas by 30 seconds.  The women's field was trumped by Lynn Burns of Needham who eked out a narrow win over Orleans native Dawn Varnum, 41:40 to 42:19.  Plans are already under way for the 32nd year and we look forward to hosting you again in Chatham, the first stop of the East Wind!

  (Chatham, 13 April 2009) - Welcome to the 31st running of the Chatham Harbor Run! This year's race will be a fantastic event and we look forward to seeing you in Chatham in June.  On-line registration is now open!

- Matt Haringa of GBTC tackles the heat and hills of Chatham and comes out on top in 33:48, catching leader Joe Navas just past the 5 mile mark. Liz Crowley of Brookline leads the women's field in 39:20. Kudos to all who struggled through a hot, humid, sticky run with times far off PR paces. Check full results here. Next year? Overcast, rainy and cool - we promise! Thanks from the Chatham High School scholarship fund and the Chatham Harbor Run and Walk race directors ... and we look forward to seeing you next year.

(Chatham, 10 April 2008) - Want to get an introduction to the course?  Join the Tuesday night Harbor Run every week beginning at the High School at 5:30pm.  The group run is free, at all different kinds of paces, and the crew usually retires to a local watering hole for post-run refreshment.  For more information, see the weekly run calendar at the Cape Cod Athletic Club site.

(Chatham, 07 April 2008) - Welcome to the 30th Annual Edition!  Maybe a special event or two planned for this year and the t-shirts are certain to disappear quickly.  On-line registration is now open for the 30th running and we hope to see you there!

(Chatham, 25 June 2007) - Full results have now been posted for both the 5K walk and the 10K run.  And yes, it really was 10K and not 5 miles.  A request is out to the timing company to update the race title. Save the date for next year: 22 June ... and tell all your friends!

(Chatham, 24 June 2007) - Cloudless skies turn the heat on but low humidity make for slightly better than average conditions for the 29th running of the Chatham Harbor Run.  Leading from wire to wire, Joe Navas claimed the overall win in 33 minutes, holding off returning champion Ian Nurse and a record-sized field, at least in recent history, of 277.  Joe now joins the two-timers club but can he make it a tri-fec next year?  Lizbie Porter of Arlington claimed the overall women's title in 41:19 with a comfortable 1 minute 13 second cushion over Dawn Varnum of Eastham.  Full results will be available shortly.  Thanks to all who participated and join us next year ... and don't forget that "everyday is like this in Chatham."

Celebrate summer with a run along the shore in Chatham!
