The Save The Gay Head Lighthouse Committee would like to thank everyone who helped to make the second annual Gay Head 10K, a Race Against Time, the resounding success that it was.
The race would not have been possible without our generous and supportive sponsors: Cronig’s Market, WBUR, Artforms, Rotary Club of Martha’s Vineyard, Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank, Flanders Up-Island Real Estate, Hinckley Lumber, Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank, Santander, South Mountain Company, Thunderbird, Wynn and Wynn, Beetlebung Tree Care, Cape Air, CB Stark Jewelers, Heartbreak Hill Running Company, Martha’s Vineyard Insurance, Coca Cola of Martha’s Vineyard, DaRosa’s MV Printing Company, Island Source, Martha’s Vineyard Sightseeing, Orange Peel Bakery, Stop & Shop, Tilton Tent Rental, the Tisbury Farm Market, and the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah).
Volunteers came from every island town and included: the Aquinnah Police and Fire Departments, Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah), police officers from Chilmark, West Tisbury, Oak Bluffs and Edgartown, Tri-Town Ambulance, MVRHS Cross Country Team, and anyone else we may have inadvertently missed.
Joe and Marylee Schroeder added a wealth of information and help up to and during the race. And the Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce also rallied for our cause.
We would also like to extend special thanks to the Aquinnah Police Department, especially Chief Randhi Belain, and Jay Smalley, Frank Perez and their crew. Thanks also to Paula and David Eisenberg for donating & manning the pace car. And a very appreciative thank you to Marshall and Joseph Lee for putting in the time and effort to measure the course for certification by USA Track and Field.
And, of course, many thanks to all the runners, for without your participation this could never have happened.
