The un-carrier meets running.
THE #RUNcarrier!

The Mount Desert Island Marathon & Half-Marathon is not your ordinary road race: We seek to attract the very best runners from our own home state of Maine, the greater New England area, and beyond. Many of these athletes are on the cusp of their big break, or simply going all-in to see just how far they can literally chase their dreams!

Our race is working to attract these runners, while also increasing our prize purse to further reward their hard work and dedication to our sport.
