Make Your Friends Green with Envy: Special Opportunity for TD Beach to Beacon Virtual 10K Entrants

Cape Elizabeth, ME, (June  21, 2021)—Runners who register for the 2021 TD Beach to Beacon Virtual 10K will want to take a closer look inside their race  kit they receive in the mail as two lucky packages will contain an unexpected surprise – the first-ever “Green Ticket” that entitles the holder to free lifetime entry into the renowned event. Presented by TD Bank, winners will also receive TD Beach to Beacon 10K branded merchandise and a $100 TD Bank gift card.

“While we would love to be celebrating the running of the 23rd TDB2B in person, we are still looking forward to coming together for this world-class event virtually. We thought it would be fun to add an unexpected element to this year’s event by introducing the Green Ticket sweepstakes, giving two winners entry for life to this special race,” said Larry Wold, TD Bank, Maine Market President and TDB2B10K Legacy Runner.

People who want to register for the virtual event and be included in the sweepstakes must register by July 9th. For more details as well as the terms and conditions of the Green Ticket sweepstakes please visit Green Ticket Sweepstakes. All those who have already registered and are 18 and older will be automatically included in the sweepstakes and have a chance to win registration for a lifetime.

Registration for the overall virtual event opened on Wednesday June 2nd and closes Friday, August 6th. Visit beach2beacon.org.

While registering, runners have an opportunity to make a donation to support the 2021 race beneficiary, JMG, a nonprofit that partners with public education and private businesses to offer results-driven solutions to ensure all Maine students graduate, attain post-secondary credentials, and pursue meaningful careers.
