TD Beach to Beacon 10K
General Volunteer 2020
August 1st, 2020
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the TD Beach to Beacon 10K.
Please see below for notice on the official cancelation of the 2020 event.
CAPE ELIZABETH, Maine (April 29, 2020) – Due to ongoing concerns regarding the impact of COVID-19, and recent guidelines announced by the Maine Governor’s office, the board of directors of the TD Beach to Beacon 10K road race voted on Tuesday to cancel the 2020 race scheduled for August 1.
“COVID-19 and its impact on our state, the nation, and the world is unprecedented and after significant review and in partnership with our medical partners we have made this very difficult decision. We know this will be disappointing for those of us who look forward to the race each year but the health and safety of our runners, volunteers, spectators, staff, and community remains paramount,” said David Backer, President of the TD Beach to Beacon 10K.
The $55 race entry fees will be automatically refunded to all registered runners over the coming weeks. Additionally, given demand for registration, race organizers have announced that all 2020 registrants will have an opportunity for early entry into the 2021 race. Race organizers will release details about the early entry process when finalized.
The 2020 race beneficiary, JMG, will remain the beneficiary for the 23rd running which will be held, as is tradition, on the first Saturday in August of 2021.
“This has been a heartbreaking decision for all of us but is the right and only decision to be made at this time of uncertainty and unknowns”, said Joan Benoit Samuelson, Race Founder and Olympic gold medalist. “The TD Beach to Beacon 10K will return next year, consistent with the enduring nature of our sport, team and community.”
Samuelson continued, “As we run apart, we gain new strengths and appreciation for those who keep pace with us in our daily lives, especially those who have been on the frontlines of this pandemic with selfless endurance and courage.”
Race organizers will share updates in the coming weeks on plans for how the TD Beach to Beacon 10K community can stay connected during this time.
FOR THE 2021 RACE:
Volunteer registration will open on April 1, 2021.
Volunteering is a fun way to get involved with the TDB2B10K - whether you are a runner or not. Our volunteers come from all over the country to assist with runner registration, course set up, water stations, recycling, parking, and many other jobs. We have over 800 people that help with this exciting event!
Thank you again for your interest, and we hope you will consider volunteering for this world class sporting event on the coast of Maine! This race could not happen without a dedicated group of volunteers, and we very much appreciate your time.
