BAR HARBOR — After 16 years, Crow Athletics is retiring the Fourth of July Around MDI Relay.
“We have decided not to hold it this year,” Crow Athletics Director Gary Allen told the Islander. “It’s a lot of work, and we figured it might be fun to celebrate the Fourth without holding the event.”
The race began and ended at Mainely Meets in Hulls Cove, taking runners all over Mount Desert Island in the process. At 61.97 miles, it was MDI’s longest road race.
