2nd Annual Icy Elf 5K @ Waldoboro Village
Dec 16 @ 3:00 pm
2nd Annual Icy Elf 5K @ Waldoboro Village

Santa Claus is coming to town and the elves will be working hard all day to get Waldoboro ready for his arrival. But it’s bound to be cold, so we’re organizing a 5K to get everyone’s blood moving and warm before Santa shows up.

So join us for our 2nd annual festive run through town. We’ll have hot chocolate and candy canes and Christmas lights and prizes (even one for the best dressed elf). Local businesses will be open late with hot drinks and snacks and things you can buy to finish off your Christmas shopping.

We’ll have Christmas-themed age group prizes. Plus, an Elf at the finish line to congratulate you on your run. And so many more prizes and giveaways to announce as we get closer to race day.

Registration is $15 until September 1st. $20 on race day. You can also register in advance at Long Winter Soap Co in the Village.

The Kid’s Run is free.

Walkers are always welcome!

Monies raised go toward efforts to revitalize and promote the historic Waldoboro Village.

If you skip this race, you’ll end up on the naughty list.

Ice & Snow Weekend Adventure @ Mahoosuc Mountain Lodge | Newry | Maine | United States

Come together for a wintertime frolic with Acadia Mountain Guides & MYA! We’ll spend the weekend opting outside for ice climbing, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing with sweet accommodations at Mahoosuc Mountain Lodge.

The adventure will begin at the traditional New England timberframe lodge in the beautiful Bear River Valley of Newry. One mile from Grafton Notch State Park, the Mahoosuc Mountain Lodge views are dominated by the 3500-4000′ peaks of the Mahoosuc Range.

Adventurers will enjoy plenty of hearty, healthy vegetarian food and yoga practices to help maximize outdoor fun. Everyone will share cozy bunk room lodging and MYA trip leaders will be working their magic in the large kitchen area serving up tasty breakfasts and dinners.

A challenging and satisfyingly full weekend of outdoor explorations is in store for adventurers. Acadia Mountain Guides will help guide us through ice climbing, snowshoeing, and possibly cross-country skiing as well. AMG always delivers professional, state-of-the-art instruction by highly skilled and very fun guides.

The guides will tailor our climbing experience to our level. Beginners welcome! No worries about gear, Acadia Mountain Guides provide Double Boots, Crampons/Micro Spikes, Technical Ice Axes, Harness, Helmet, and anything else you could possibly need to make the bliss of ice climbing happen.

We’ll follow up ice climbing with snowshoe hiking which is always wicked fun in such a gorgeous locale. Fingers crossed for piles and piles of snow! If you don’t have snowshoes, the guides will provide them. If you have cross-country skis, bring them, if conditions are good we’ll definitely hit the trails. If you don’t have skis, MYA will help rent them.

Yoga practices will definitely happen throughout the weekend and the food will be healthy, delicious and vegetarian!

Don’t miss out on this opportunity in the gorgeous White Mountains of NH with awesome guides playing in the ice & snow…

Cost: $450 early birds; $475 after Dec 31. Please register online at maineyogaadventures.com or call 207-299-0082.

As we drop down and and complete the loop you will have incredible views of the cliffs and streams that run along the base of Megunticook. This is an intermediate trip, you must be in good physical conditon.
