Everything You Need to Know About Martha’s Vineyard Marathon
Located on a gorgeous island just south of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard is a wonderful place to visit any time of year, but it’s especially fascinating during the annual Martha’s Vineyard Marathon and Half Marathon. The island offers two stunning courses for the highly anticipated event. Both courses are relatively flat with gentle rolls and feature an array of stunning views along the way. Participating in either the full or half marathon will allow you to take in the island’s best vistas while challenging yourself!
Pro-tip: The Martha’s Vineyard Marathon is also a qualifier for the Boston Marathon, and you won’t get a course as beautiful as this one anywhere else!
