You won’t want to miss the 13th Annual Beach to Beacon 10K road race this Saturday, August 7, as the field of 6,000+ runners is loaded with talent with many elite athletes, including last years champs, Ed Muge and Irene Limika, back to defend their titles. Muge will be going for his third straight Beach to Beacon title. Running legends Catherine Ndereba and Khalid Khannouchi will also be amongst the talented field. While we’re at it, let’s remind everyone to be on the lookout for former Greeley High School standout Ben True, returning to Cape Elizabeth to see if he can climb further up the elite ranks after placing 10th last year and shattering the Maine course record. This time he’ll be representing Oregon Track Club Elite, after heading out west after last years race to increase his distance training and compete at a higher level. Best of luck to Ben…
Good luck to all runners and thanks to all spectators. Here is some further information for you as race day approaches;
Great news – there will be added shuttles to the starting line this year due to the increased number of runners. You will be able to catch a shuttle at South Portland High School off Highland Ave, or the Hannaford parking lot off Pleasant Hill Ave in Scarborough, in addition to the usual shuttles in and around Cape Elizabeth.
Enjoy the race!!
