Why you should become an Official Sponsor of the MDI Marathon
The Mount Desert Island Marathon, Half & Relay, now in our 15th exciting year, continues to earn high marks and tremendous accolades from both participants and the running industry at large. Most recently our event was named ‘2015 Race of the Year’ by New England Runner Magazine.
Over $170,000.00 (and counting!) has been raised through our innovative ‘Beyond the Finish Line Program’, benefiting many local nonprofit organizations. This year we have partnered with our first national charity to help raise funds for St Jude’s Children’s Hospital where no child ever receives a bill. In addition two scholarships are funded and awarded annually to a graduating girl and boy from Mount Desert Island High School.
Our event continues to grow and attract runners from all across the USA, Canada, and abroad. This predicable influx of spectators, runners, and their families has been credited with helping to extend the traditional tourist season here on Mount Desert Island.
