Chilmark Road Race

Starts Saturday August 1st, 2020

Chilmark, MA

Official Website


Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Chilmark Road Race is being held as a VIRTUAL event. This beloved annual summer tradition and fundraiser will, as always, include race t-shirts, numbers, as well as the opportunity to purchase additional shirts and gear.  


This year’s Chilmark Road Race participants may not be running up and down the hills of Middle Road with 1,600 pairs of feet around them, but we want you to still feel part of the larger Chilmark Road Race community, while raising much needed funds for the Chilmark Community Center.  This year’s race will be a wonderful, fun, and memorable experience!  In 2020, you can be anywhere in the world and you can still run the Chilmark Road Race! We are all #runningtogetherapart!

Participants will complete a 5k from August 7th to August 10th on whatever course they choose, and then report their results.  At the end of the race period, the results will be tallied and posted.


Starting at 8am on June 15th and continuing to 8pm on July 15th, participants will be able to register themselves and their families for this year’s virtual race. During the registration process, participants will:  

  • Sign up for the virtual race

  • Pick race shirt size

  • Have the opportunity to purchase additional race gear (hats, sweatshirts, speciality tees and tanks, etc.)
