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 certified course.

The race motto has always been: NO WEENIES! Numerous award levels exist, and every runner receives a finisher medal and an official MV 20-Miler long sleeve T.
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. The first 10 miles run along the coast so it will most likely be windy and cold.
