Goals for 2011: Sub 16 5K Sub 33 10K Sub 1:15 Half Top 3 at Maine Marathon
I have a vague recall of a half in Hannover NH (Dartmouth) that happens right before school starts, late August. Also there's one in Plymouth MA, or somewhere on the Cape, really early in September -- some folks used it last year for a final test before the Maine Marathon. Sorry, don't know the name or details on either.
Check out www.halfmarathons.net, or post over the "Half Marathon Trainers" group here on RA for more ideas.
I think the challenge for your timing is that few races will be scheduled over the Labor Day weekend.

Yup, the one in Hannover is at the end of August, or it was last year, not sure what the schedule calls for this year but probably around the same time:
Run to Win23 Marathons, 10 Ultras, 16 States (Full List)
Old topic i know, but you should be aware of the follwing half-marathons. They might not be in your area of interests (small and not on the right dates, but consider them)
<h4>Sunday, July 11, 8 a.m PFBF Half Marathon - Oakland</h4>
6/26 - Rail Trail Half Marathon - Augusta
Thanks, Eric. I know about those races, but they are too early for me. I've decided to bump up my marathon to November and do the Maine half marathon in October.
I think the Maine Half is a great race for you Jeff, you are going to fly!
