The TD Beach to Beacon 10K Road Race is one of the gems on the U.S. road race circuit, attracting the world s top elite runners to Maine's craggy coastline each year.
The race draws runners from throughout the region and the world to the small coastal community of Cape Elizabeth. Thousands of spectators cheer on the runners along the picturesque course and at the finish at the historic and stunning Portland Head Light, the most photographed lighthouse in the world.
The race was founded in 1998 by Olympic champion Joan Benoit Samuelson, a Maine native and running icon. Together with TD Bank, the title sponsor, she created the world-class event as a way to support children. Each year, the race benefits a different children s charity in Maine by providing a cash donation on behalf of TD Bank, through the TD Charitable Foundation.
The race director is Dave McGillivray, president of DMSE, Inc., a nationally recognized event management company. McGillivray also serves as the race director of the BAA Boston Marathon.
