BRISTOL — The 22nd season of the NH Marathon concluded with a special reception on November 2. Volunteers and sponsors gathered to celebrate another successful Marathon year. The race this year saw a record 756 participants finish in the Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k, Health Walk & Kids Race combined.

Race Director Dan MacLean welcomed the group by thanking everyone for helping with the event. Thanks were given to the many volunteers, sponsors, and hospitality sites for this year's Marathon. And special thanks and recognition was given to Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield who was the title sponsor of the race again this year. MacLean also thanks The Inn on Newfound Lake as they have been a continuing sponsor of the Marathon and hosted the celebration.

The reception opened with recognition given to a few key organizations that helped with the race, each receiving small donations for their efforts: Newfound Area Chiefs Association for the police officers and EMTs from the area towns – Chief Travis Austin of Hebron PD was on hand to accept the donation; Community Emergency Response Team for their assistance with parking and road safety – Wendell Beaty was on hand to accept this donation. A donation will also be made to the Newfound Regional High School Band program for playing music at the start including the National Anthem.
