The Martha’s Vineyard 20 Miler is a must race for die-hard runners of many levels. From highly competitive athletes looking for a test of their Boston and spring marathon readiness, to dedicated recreational runners seeking to extend the length of their monthly long-run, this race offers the chance to combine a visit to one of the East Coast’s most beautiful shore communities with a race on a fast, USATF sanctioned course. Not quite up to the 20 mile challenge? Grab a partner and enter the Amity Island Relay (2x10 miles)!

Registration for the 19th Annual Martha's Vineyard 20 Miler & Amity Island Relay will open on Thursday, August 13, 2015 at 12:00am

 

The course is mostly flat, with some rolling hills, and circles through the varied terrain of three Island towns. Starting at Vineyard Haven Harbor, runners pass by the historic Gingerbread Cottages of Oak Bluffs, work their way along a barrier beach road that separates Nantucket Sound and the 700 acre Sengekontacket Pond, cross a section of Edgartown’s farming community, and finish back in Oak Bluffs with a trek through the Massachusetts Department of Conservation & Recreation's Manuel F. Correllus State Forest.

Be prepared for all New England has to offer. Some years are bright and sunny, others are windy and damp, and of course there is always a chance of snow!

We have been selected by New England Runner Magazine as one of the top 100 races yearly since inception, and do our best to make your visit and race memorable.

There are accurately placed mile markers, nine waters stations, and fun post race festivities with music and a meal featuring Chief Petty Officer Larry Santos' award winning New England clam chowder, minestrone soup, fruit, yogurt and other goodies.

Numerous award levels exist, and every runner receives a finisher medals and a 2016

 Beanie!
