2019 Martha’s Vineyard Marathon

The National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA) is excited to announce that we’ve been selected to participate in the 2019 Martha’s Vineyard Marathon Charity Program. We invite you to join us On May 18, 2019 as Team Stop the Clot® runs through the scenic beach-lined streets of Martha’s Vineyard.

Martha’s Vineyard is a picturesque island located south of Cape Code in Massachusetts. It is famous for it’s natural beauty with miles of beaches, and walking, hiking, and biking trails. Now you have a reason to make this bucket-list destination race your “run-cation.” The course is relatively flat with a few gentle rollers. Whether you’re trying to qualify for Boston or just want to run a beautiful race, see why Martha’s Vineyard is so famous and spend a few extra days at this destination favorite.

The marathon starts at Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School and runs the first 13 miles through DCR Manuel Correllus State Forest, then right down through Edgartown with a finish on Beach Rd, over the famous “Jaws” bridge, with a finish in beautiful Waban Park in Oak Bluffs.
