The Martha’s Vineyard
Scoops 5K is a great race for runners and walkers of all ages and abilities.
The original Scoops course “toured” the streets of
downtown Edgartown, which made for an interesting, but hectic,
race. In 1998 we moved the race to Katama, where the flat, rural
landscape gives you a chance to turn a personal best for the
summer. The race starts at the The Farm Institute at Katama Farm, a
beautiful and expansive working farm. From there runners continue
along the edge of Katama Bay, catch a glimpse of South Beach and the
Atlantic Ocean and finish back at the Farm Institute, amidst its
cattle and silos. There is a half-kilometer fun run for kids around
the property and we have numerous age group awards. The Scoops 5K is a
fun event for the whole family.
