Mount Desert Island Half Marathon

Laura Clough, Sarah Emily Teaford and Calen Colby, all of Colby Co., ran in the Mount Desert Island Half Marathon in September.  The MDI YMCA’s USATF Certified Half Marathon is the only race of its kind held in a National Park. Nine miles of the course wind through Acadia’s carriage road system which is a unique national treasure that is considered the best example of broken stone roads in America. The proceeds from the race fund the YMCA’s scholarship fund.  Approximately 400 people participated in this year’s race.
