The Gay Head 10K Committee would like to thank everyone who helped to make the seventh annual Gay Head 10K, a Race for the Light, another success.

The race would not have been possible without our generous and supportive sponsors.

Volunteers came from on and off-Island and included Ken Armstead, Leena Barua and Donna Golaski, Shelly Carter, David Eisenberg, Beth Green, Morgan and Bill Lake, Joseph Lee, Marshall Lee, Sam Lee, Tom Murphy, Jeff Passetti, Suzanne and Alan Rugg, MVRHS Cross Country Team, Jim Vercruysse and anyone else we may have inadvertently overlooked.

Joe and Marylee Schroeder, as always, were an invaluable source of help up to and during the race. We would also like to extend special thanks to the Aquinnah police department, and police departments from all over the Island, especially Aquinnah Chief Randhi Belain, Sgt. Paul Manning, the Aquinnah fire department, Ben Retmier and his team of EMTs, to the Aquinnah department of public works director Jay Smalley, Frank Perez and Vincent, as well as to the Martha’s Vineyard Public Schools, and Hugh Weisman for all their assistance.

And of course, many thanks to all the runners from near and far for coming out on what turned out to be a perfect day. Without your participation, this could never have happened.
