The RacePartner Team Takes 3rd Place
About The TD Beach to Beacon 10K
Runners of all abilities from throughout New England and across the nation will join many of the top runners in the world at the starting line in Cape Elizabeth for the 19th TD Beach to Beacon 10K on August 6, 2016.
How the Race Came to Be
Joan Benoit Samuelson, a native of Cape Elizabeth, Maine, won the first-ever women’s Marathon at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles and is founder and chair of the TD Beach to Beacon 10K. “A long time dream of mine has been realized” says Samuelson. “I’ve always wanted to create a race that brings runners to some of my most favorite training grounds, so that they can enjoy the same beautiful environment, sense of community and rich history that has played such an important role in my life.” Locals and visitors alike will enjoy themselves immensely whether they choose to spectate or participate.
