Chilmark Road Race
Since 1978, the Chilmark Road Race has been run along beautiful but oh-so-hilly Middle Road. Proceeds from the race are donated to the Town Affairs Council to assist in the operations of the Chilmark Community Center and make scholarships to year round residents possible. This page is intended to give some general information about the race.
The Chilmark Road Race occurs on the second Saturday of August. The 2017 Chilmark Road Race will be held on August 12th.

The Road Race could not occur if it were not for the numerous volunteers who help with everything from parking to handing out water. If you are interested in volunteering for the Chilmark Road Race, call the Center at (508) 645-9484 in early August. All volunteers get a free shirt, on a first-come first-served basis!
The Community Center would like to thank Hugh Weisman, the founder of the Chilmark Road Race, for the countless hours that he and his family dedicate annually to the organization of the Run-for-the-Lobster. The Road Race is one of the highlights of every Chilmark summer and an important fund-raiser for the Center.
A special thank you to the Chilmark General Store for your continued support of the CCC and your generous donations to the Chilmark Road Race!
