Preparation continues for Beach to Beacon



The traditional countdown to the Aug. 4 TD Beach to Beacon 10K Road Race commenced July 5 with placement of the mile markers along the coastal course in Cape Elizabeth. Cape Elizabeth Public Works employees Darren Brown (wearing cap) and Jack O’Kelly installed the markers along the route. This is the 21st running of the world-class road race, founded by Olympic gold medalist and Cape Elizabeth native Joan Benoit Samuelson. Maine’s largest road race, which attracts international and American runners, begins near Crescent Beach and ends in Fort Williams Park at Portland Head light. The event’s lead sponsor is TD Bank. The 2018 race beneficiary is WinterKids, a nonprofit organization that helps children develop healthy lifelong habits through education and fun outdoor winter activity.
