TD Beach to Beacon 10K Adds Virtual Component for 2021

Cape Elizabeth, ME, (March 23,2021) —Based on the guidance and recommendations of state and local health organizations, as well as the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the TD Beach to Beacon 10K will include a virtual component for 2021, while continuing to evaluate options for an in-person event. Additional details for both the virtual and in-person events will be announced soon.

“March is always a time of high anticipation and excitement for our race community, as it’s when we typically open the competitive online registration process for a bib number.  We know everyone is eagerly awaiting updates on our 2021 race, and we are continuing to work through plans to ensure the event will be safe for the runners, volunteers and the larger community,” said David Backer, President of the TD Beach to Beacon 10K. “We thank everyone for their ongoing support and will announce more details as soon as we can confidently do so. In the meantime, please continue practicing the protective measures to help us all stay safe and healthy.”

“I am proud to work with so many dedicated people who care deeply about this world class event and the community at large,” said Joan Benoit Samuelson, Founder and Chair of the TD Beach to Beacon 10K. “To say these are unknown and challenging times is more than an understatement, but we have proven time and again that this is a strong, resilient community.  As runners, we know all about perseverance, and I have no doubt we will persevere to come out of this pandemic stronger than before.”

JMG will remain the 2021 beneficiary for the TD Beach to Beacon 10K.
