Online registration for the TD Beach to Beacon 10K road race will be held March 13 for Cape Elizabeth residents and March 14 for others interested in participating in the 17th edition of the event on Saturday, Aug. 2.
Six hundred entries are reserved for Cape Elizabeth residents, who can register at www.beach2beacon.org at 7 a.m., March 13. Registration for everyone else opens at 7 a.m. March 14, with 4,000 spots available.
