Maine legend, Olympic gold medalist to run in Sugarloaf Marathon

...The marathon gets underway in Eustis at 7 a.m. while the 15K goes off a half-hour later in Carrabassett Valley.

The 15-kilometer race consists of the final 9.3 miles of the marathon course.

Samuelson said Thursday afternoon she’s still weighing her options in terms of which race to run, as she’d like to run alongside Westphal.

“The main reason to do it was to run with Michael to raise awareness for Parkinson’s [Disease],” said Samuelson, whose friendship with Westphal dates back to when the two were in high school.

The pair are teaming up to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation.

Sugarloaf Marathon: Samuelson, Westphal running beyond 60, together
Joan Benoit Samuelson and Michael Westphal will run side by side Sunday to raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation.

...Samuelson will run the marathon, her first on Maine soil, and Westphal, who returned to running a few years ago as a way to deal with the effects of his Parkinson’s disease, will join her for the final 15 kilometers. Pelvic stress fractures prevented him from running Sunday’s full marathon as originally planned, when Samuelson greeted him at the finish line of the 2016 Boston Marathon – his first attempt at Boston in 30 years.

“It just happened spontaneously,” Samuelson said. “I said, ‘Michael, I’ve never run a marathon in Maine. When I do, it’s going to be with you.’ ”

The 35th running of the Sugarloaf Marathon is scheduled to begin in Eustis at 7 a.m. The 15K is scheduled to start at 7:30 in Carrabassett

Runners successfully defend Sugarloaf Marathon titles

... Joan Benoit Samuelson of Freeport, the 1984 Olympic gold medalist, finished seventh in her first marathon in her home state with a time of 3:12:21. With 15 kilometers to go, Samuelson was joined by Maine running legend Michael Westphal of Great Cranberry Island, and the due crossed the finish line side by side.

Samuelson’s son Anders Samuelson dominated the men’s field in the 15-kilometer race with a time of 52:13 seconds, while Tamma Carelton of Berkeley, California, emerged as the women’s champion in 55:59.
