It’s fitting, because at the heart of the race is another 2, a dynamic duo in the middle of this annual celebration of running by the sea – race founder Joan Benoit Samuelson and race director Dave McGillivray. They’ve been working together since the road race debuted in 1998.

THE FORECASTER

Joan Benoit Samuelson is someone you really can’t say enough good things about. The humble Mainer probably hates the attention and adulation, but come on, she’s an Olympic gold medalist in the most brutal of competitions, the marathon, and now she’s synonymous with a world-class 10K road race.
