The art of perpetual motion
Jason Mann runs alongside marathoner Gary Allen, a 12th generation Great Cranberry Island native, who shares with him Great Cranberry Island features and social history. Allen created the Mount Desert Island Marathon and Great Cranberry Island Ultramarathon (2013 marked the last year it was run). Mann chronicles the 2013 MDI Marathon. While Allen acknowledges the island’s population is dwindling and that the island is struggling to remain a viable community, the island inhabitants and those closely associated with it are optimistic that it can be done.
