The Story

Behind the Race

Joan Benoit Samuelson, Maine’s most recognizable athlete who continues to serve as an inspiration for women runners around the world, founded the TD Beach to Beacon 10K Road Race, then known as the Peoples Beach to Beacon, in 1998 to benefit children’s charities in Maine. With the help of the bank, Joan’s efforts quickly elevated the annual race to world-class status.
