Set and ready to go



The traditional countdown to the Aug. 5 TD Beach to Beacon 10K Road Race got underway on July 5 with the placement of the mile markers along the coastal course in Cape Elizabeth as Cape Elizabeth Public Works employees Jason Emery (left) and Darren Brown installed the markers along the route. This is the 20th year for the world-class road race, which was founded by Olympic gold medalist and Cape Elizabeth native Joan Benoit Samuelson. Maine’s largest road race, which attracts top international and American runners, begins near Crescent Beach and ends in Fort Williams Park at the historic Portland Head light. The event’s lead sponsor is TD Bank. The 2017 race beneficiary is Let’s Go!, a nationally recognized program of The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center focused on increasing physical activity and healthy eating for children from birth to age 18.
