Greg A. Gumbinner was tragically taken from his family and friends in a small plane crash in November of 2000. Greg lived his life to the fullest. His passions included flying, tennis, hiking, running and eating (he was second to none at an all you can eat buffet!). Greg was a veteran of 20 marathons, including a PR of 2:57:50 at the Boston Marathon in '96. He completed his last marathon (Marine Corps, 2000) in 3:09:14, proudly finishing as the 4th Clydesdale overall and first in his division. (He was even prouder for his brother, Fred, who in competing in his first marathon, won the 225 lb division).
Greg touched the lives of many. Friends, family and business associates appreciated the unique sense of humor and the mannerisms that were Greg. Those “Gregisms” will remain indelibly etched in our minds and souls forever.

One of Greg's favorite running routes was the stretch of beach from Ogunquit to Wells and back. It is here that we chose to put on a race that Greg wouldn't have missed.
