Take The Night 5K @ Portland | Portland | Maine | United States

ALL levels and ages are welcome.
$5 cash entry.

VOLUNTEERS:
As we prepare for the race, we’re looking for a few volunteers willing to help with TURNS on the course. We’ll have cones and lights to signal the few turns in the race but they are easy to miss if your head is down. If you’re unable to race but will to be there, cheer and help then message us!

COURSE:
https://www.strava.com/routes/8350964

RUNNERS:
Parts of the course are very dark! All runners MUST have a head lamp/light on the front of their body at all times. As a precaution please have something reflective that can be seen from behind your body (this is not mandatory, but come’on, its just smart).

SEE YOU ON THE START LINE

Millinocket Mud Run 2018 @ George W. Stearns High School
Jul 28 @ 8:00 am – 11:00 am
Millinocket Mud Run 2018 @ George W. Stearns High School | Millinocket | Maine | United States

2nd Annual Stearns Sports Boosters Mud Run Fundraiser.

Registration forms are printed and available at the high school office. I can also email PDF copies or you can print from the photos I posted. There are many new shares!! Amazing response so far. For those of you new to this run, there are a few things to make you aware of.

1.) Although we will track everyone’s time, this is an “officially unofficial” type of run.

2.) This is a Millinocket style mud run! We create the mud; you create the fun! This IS NOT a hired out fancy mud run, but I’ll tell you what…we had more fun last year than you can imagine.

3.) Distance wise, this is pretty close to a 5K. Mileage isn’t exact. Go with the flow and if you want a few more steps, feel free to take another lap around the course.

Come run/walk for the fun of it, and support you local athletic boosters organization in the process. Hope to see you here on July 28th.

Register early in order to reserve your spot. Email me if you’d like a PDF registration form to print out at home. kbrad4rd@gmail.com

Tough Mountain Challenge @ Sunday River
Jul 28 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
Tough Mountain Challenge @ Sunday River | Maine | United States

If you’re looking for something different – something as fun as it is tough without the ego and the crowds – welcome to the Tough Mountain Challenge. And we don’t just say we’re different, we really are. Our 4-ish mile course with 20+ obstacles runs up and down (and a little across) Sunday River resort. There’s mud, water, and steep hills to climb next to the uber-elite fit and the couch-to-mud-run-in-24-hours types. Old, young, lifetime athletes and the just starting out kind, we’re here to challenge you to where you want to be pushed. Our crew has just as much fun as the competitors; we like the poke the bear and make crass jokes. Throw in a shot-gun beer station halfway through, and you know you’re gonna have a good time.
