Robert Burns 10k Road Race @ Westbrook Community Center
Jan 28 @ 9:30 am
Robert Burns 10k Road Race @ Westbrook Community Center | Westbrook | Maine | United States

“There is no such uncertainty as a sure thing.” -Robert Burns

The idea of the Robert Burns 10k race was born out of conversation over good food, wine and beer, and positive vibes at our fellow comrade Chips rooftop patio. Having for so many years competed in events, we were excited and passionate to finally learn the ropes of putting on a well managed race ourselves. We agreed that the event should be unique, support a good cause, and have a special personal element connected to the theme of the race. Both of us celebrate our ancestry and connection to the cultural gifts of the Scottish Heritage, and thought of who better to embody the spirit of this race Than Robert Burns- The most cherished and celebrated Poet from Scotland. The proceeds of the race will go to the Westbrook High School Alternative Learning Bike Shop, a hands-on learning program for kids who are at risk of dropping out. We believe that people learn in many different ways, and all too often schools don’t provide adequate options for hands on/ alternative learning. Many children’s full potential to learn is not realized simply due to the fact that different learning styles are not embraced and cultivated in the education system, and that is something we are trying to change. In this program kids learn about science and physics through the mechanics of bicycle repair. -Ned Swain & Myles Courtney, race founders.

2018 Pineland Farms Trail Running Festival @ Pineland Farms
May 26 – May 27 all-day
2018 Pineland Farms Trail Running Festival @ Pineland Farms | New Gloucester | Maine | United States

Come and experience Maine’s finest trail running festival! Races include a 1km Kids’ race, 5km Canicross (dog+runner), standard 5km, and a 10km on Saturday 5/26/18; and a 25km, 50km, and 50 miler on Sunday 5/27/18.

The trails are 12′ wide non-technical XC paths through the woods and pastoral farmland with no noticable roots or rocks. The trails twist, turn, and roll like a roller coaster and include very few flat areas.

The festival also includes plenty of beer drinking, BBQ (veggie friendly), pot-luck dishes, desserts, eclectic music performances, and fun family activities.
