Paces for PAWS @ Belfast Rail Trail

Paces for PAWS is a dog friendly event so please bring your best canine companions to participate in the festivities (don’t forget leashes, please)! With this event, we hope to provide an opportunity for people of all ages in our community to help homeless and abandoned animals receive the medical care, shelter and companionship they need until their forever homes are found.

Event check-in will begin at 7:30 AM, with the 5k Race beginning at 8:30 AM. If running isn’t your thing, you can still join in on the fun! The 1 mile Family Fun Pledge Walk will begin at 9:30 AM (please arrive for check-in by 9:00 AM). Walk with your dogs, kids or friends; come out in silly hats or costumes; make it your own and most importantly, have some fun!

​Come join us! Enjoy the outdoors with your 2 & 4 legged friends and support a good cause. We look forward to seeing you there!

Lake Auburn Half Marathon & 5K @ Central Maine Community College
Sep 8 @ 8:00 am – 12:30 pm
Lake Auburn Half Marathon & 5K @ Central Maine Community College

Join us for the 8th Annual Lake Auburn Half Marathon, 5K Walk/Run and Kids Fun Run at Central Maine Community College in Auburn, Maine. Through its partnership with Moving ME Forward (a nonprofit 501(c)3 founded in 2012), this event supports the local community through personal, business, and private contributions focused on supporting Maine communities to provide a healthier place to live.

The monies generated from this race provide the primary funding for the Moving ME Forward Grant Program. We pride ourselves in encouraging community members to pursue healthier lifestyles and every day we get to witness this positive impact through the ripple effect that our ongoing engagement has throughout our local neighborhoods.

Last year we gave over $10,000 to programs that supported our local communities through monies raised during the Lake Auburn Half Marathon, 5K Walk/Run and Kids Fun Run. These programs impacted the community through financial aid, internships, mentorships, volunteer services and needed supplies such as sneakers and warm clothing. We are overjoyed in our anticipation to exceed that amount this year and watch these programs continue to positively impact our community.

This event course includes beautiful views of Lake Auburn and the surrounding countryside making this one of the most scenic half marathons in Maine to participate in. We have partnered with Baxter Brewing Company as the location for packet pick-up in the afternoon/evening before the event. There will also be an opportunity on the morning of the event for packet pick-up at Central Maine Community College. Visit our Running Resources & Tools for local training information through Central Maine Conditioning Clinic –our largest proprietary sponsor for the Lake Auburn Half Marathon.
