Campobello Island and Lubec offer lots of other attractions besides the marathon, including whale watching cruises; wild Bold Coast trails overlooking the boiling Atlantic swells; and gentler walks (and runs) in the Roosevelt-Campobello International Park, Quoddy Head State Park, Herring Cove Provincial Park, and others. Visit the lighthouses, including Head Harbour light at the northernmost tip of Campobello Island (turning point for the marathon), and the candy-striped West Quoddy Head light at the most easterly point in the continental USA (starting point for the marathon). Also in the Roosevelt Campobello International Park (title sponsor of our Half Marathon) is US President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s summer home where you can even have “Tea with Eleanor”.
