Run If you're a runner or have been considering trying a half marathon, this could be the race for you. According to the Nantucket Chamber of Commerce, the NANTUCKET HALF MARATHON, now in its fifth year, is quickly becoming one of the island's most popular annual events. Described as the "most scenic on the East Coast," the course features 13.1 miles of wooded dirt roads, tree-lined bike paths, lightly trav- eled streets, and, naturally, sweeping ocean views along much of the route. If hills aren't your thing, you'll be happy to know that the route is mostly flat. The race was sold out in 2014, so be sure to reg- ister early. This year's race will be held on Sunday, October 11 at 8:00 am. Registration fees are $65 before September 15 and $75 after. Registration closes October 9 or when the race is full. Visit www.nantuckethalfmarathon.com. Bike Fall is the perfect season for a bike ride as the air is cool and the streets and bike trails are less trav- eled. With an extensive network of bike trails and very few hills, riders of all abilities can enjoy exploring the island on a bicycle. Bring your own bike or rent one from a bike shop in town. If you prefer a guided tour, check out NANTUCKET BIKE TOURS (www.nantucketbybike.com). A number of interesting and scenic rides are offered, but one of the most fun is the eight-mile ride to Cisco Brewery. Enjoy a cold one (or two) on the outdoor patio and listen to live music in a relaxed, casual atmosphere. The tour ends here so you don't need to worry about riding your bike back to town: Your guides will help you find a cab. Dine If you've visited Nantucket in the summer, you know that there are many wonderful restaurants from which to choose. You also know that it can be impossible to get into some of the more popular spots unless you book reservations months in advance. NANTUCKET RESTAURANT WEEK is the perfect opportunity to sample the island's fine cuisine at a variety of participating restaurants and at reasonable prices with three course dinners priced from $25 to $45.
