The fun-filled morning takes place on the island of Martha’s Vineyard with hundreds of runners to raise over $50,000 for camp annually. The race begins at the beautiful Farm Institute in Katama/near South Beach in Edgartown and courses out of the farm onto Katama Road before taking a left onto Edgartown Bay Road with views of harbor. Upon reaching the entrance to South Beach, the course takes a right back onto Katama Road and runs back along the farm to the finish line. The start and finish line are in the same location. Limited parking is available so please car pool, bike, walk, etc and arrive early if possible. Bring the whole family. But, because the race starts and ends on a farm, please… no dogs. (Sorry – farm rules!) The race is rain or shine – no refunds.
BIB & T-SHIRT PICK-UP
Bib & T-Shirt Pick-up AND registration available Friday August 18th 9a-12p at Camp Jabberwocky (200 Greenwood Ave Vineyard Haven MA 02568). Come on by, saves time race day!
DAY TRIPS / TRANSPORTATION
Coming from off-island? No problem! Steamship Authority has a ferry departing 7:00am from Woods Hole, arriving 7:45 am to Vineyard Haven, MA. We recommend confirming the schedule.
By public bus (Vineyard Transit), you will need to connect at Church Street in Edgartown and take the bus toward South Beach (#8). You can connect through Edgartown from both Vineyard Haven and Oak Bluffs. For more information visit their website.
Taxis are also available and typically wait to greet each ferry arrival. It is approximately 20-30 minutes from the Vineyard Haven or Oak Bluffs ferry terminals with no traffic.
We are always looking for sponsors. Please contact us for more details to be included on race-day signage, social media, t-shirts, and to provide give-a-ways to runners!
