Island runner extraordinaire, Krav Maga instructor, and all around great guy Jules Embry-Pelrine has organized a run around Nantucket island beginning at 150 Old South Road at 7 pm on Thursday, September 19th. Jules has mapped a route that he plans to run three times over the course of the day (and night).

Jules apparently never tires. In the past 3 or 4 months alone, he has competed in the Race for Open Space, the Rock Run, the Firecracker 5K, the Iron Man, and the New School Spring Dash – just to name a few!

With this latest endeavor, Jules is raising money for the Marla Lamb Fund. The Marla Lamb Fund is a fund administered by Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket that helps to defray the costs of travel and lodging for island cancer patients who must travel off-island for cancer care and treatment. You can show your support for Jules and the Marla Lamb Fund by clicking HERE. You can also email Jules for more information.

Jules welcomes walkers, bikers, and joggers of all levels and encourages people to join him for any portion of the course. Click HERE to view the course.
