This annual race, sponsored by NewportFed, is the largest fundraising event for the Portsmouth Public Education Foundation. Proceeds earned during this event are used to supply grants for the public school teachers for projects and activities not funded by the school budget or town taxes. A portion of the proceeds also goes to the Lance Cpl. Barton J. Carroll Memorial Fund to honor the memory of Barton J. Carroll, a Marine who died on July 4, 2002 while visiting his hometown.
