2021 Race Status

Dear Series Runners,

Due to the pandemic and the continued capacity restriction on outdoor events of 100 people in the state of Maine, we are once again forced to postpone the Portland 10 Miler to September 12, 2021. We share in your disappointment and frustration in another postponement as we believe our event is just outside the window of a possible return of safe, in-person events — but an event of this size in just eight weeks is not possible under the current guidelines and outlook.

However, we are truly optimistic that this summer and fall will finally mark a return to safe, in-person events and that we will be able to responsibly host all deferred 2020 registrants of the New England 10 Miler Series in Newport, Portland and Vermont.

Sunday, June 6th

Portland 10 Miler

Vermont 10 Miler
Sunday, November 7

All events have been approved based on Covid protocols in place at the time of the event and we expect to have a clearer picture on race capacities and protocols in the coming months.

While we are still not able to offer refunds, we have added a race credit option to our existing deferral and transfer policies for your ticket that can be applicable to any 2021 or 2022 Gray Matter Marketing event. More information available HERE.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out to info@graymattermarketing.com.

Sincerely,
Matt and Drew

Series Details

Three Amazing Races

Registering for multiple races in one season can be a pain – Register in one place and be entered to run all three races, hassle free.

More Miles. More Bling!

In addition to the individual race shirts and medals, Series participants earn a special Series medal and special TBA swag item upon completing the New England 10 Miler Series at the final race of the year in Stowe, Vermont.

The 30-Mile Challenge

Prizes for the top three male and female runners with the speediest cumulative times in the series will be distributed at the final event in Stowe, Vermont. Runners must register specifically for the Series to be eligible for the cumulative time award.

Eligibility

To complete the New England 10 Miler series, runners must register for the series as a whole and participate in all three events in that calendar year. Registration for events individually will not make a runner eligible for series completion.

Race Credits

We are not able to offer refunds. However we do offer any registered runners the opportunity to request a race credit for your full value. Once issued, these Eventbrite Credits appear as a balance of your Eventbrite account. The credit balance can then be applied to the purchase price of a new ticket to any event on our calendar within two years of the day we issue the credit. Race credits may be requested up to 30 days before the event in which you are registered. Race credits will not be granted if a request is made less than 30 days prior to the event.

Extreme Weather Policy

Our events are held rain or shine. However, there is always the potential for extreme or severe weather conditions. Race organizers will do as much as we can to ensure the experience is as safe as possible. In the event of severe weather, the race may be delayed as race officials consult public safety officers. If there is more than a short delay, if conditions persist, or the forecast calls for extreme weather, race officials reserve the right to alter or cancel the race. Any decision to cancel an event is done as an absolute last resort and is made collectively with local risk management, police, fire & rescue, and medical personnel as appropriate. In such situations, there will be NO REFUNDS as registrants accept any such risk of their entry free when signing up.

Please check the website, our Facebook page, and your email before the race for any changes or cancellations.
