The Wicked Muddy Mainer @ Thornton Family Campground
Jul 13 – Jul 14 all-day
The Wicked Muddy Mainer @ Thornton Family Campground | Orrington | Maine | United States

Test your endurance in a brand new, very muddy, 20 obstacle, obstacle course race! Create teams or go at it alone in this 120 acre pig pen of sweat and tears; where you never know what’s waiting for you in the next challenge! The only thing here to be sure of, is that you won’t come out clean!

First heat line up of 100 people will begin at 7:30 am, with the first event starting at 8:00 am. From there, another wave of 100 people will be released onto the monstrous course every 20 minutes throughout the day. Athletes will work their way through 20 muscle ripping obstacles spanning over 120 acres of mud soaked trudging hell; but don’t worry we’re sure you’ll be fine.

Tough Mountain Challenge @ Sunday River

Tough Mountain Challenge @ Sunday River | Maine | United States

Why Tough Mountain Challenge?

If you want to run 10 miles in the company of 10,000 other people and wait in half-hour lines at obstacles, you’ll find plenty of events where you can do just that. If you want to suffer for hours and risk life and limb, you can find those races too. But 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.
The Race

Based at Sunday River Ski Resort in western Maine, the Tough Mountain Challenge is an adventure obstacle race that tackles alpine terrain and throws in natural and man-made challenges. It’s just 5k in length, but when you’re running up a mountain under an arsenal of snowguns or scrambling through the mud it will feel much longer. Tough Mountain Challenge is a timed event, but it’s not about whether you finish first or last – it’s about testing yourself and pushing your limits then celebrating your accomplishment once you cross the finish line.

Tough Mountain Challenge is limited to fixed number competitors in each heat to keep the race from feeling too crowded and ensure everyone has a great time. For kids, we also run a Mini Mountain Challenge.

Lake Auburn Half, 5K Walk/Run, and Kids Fun Run @ Central Maine Community College

Join us for our 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. Moving ME forward provides mentoring, programming and resources to health and fitness professionals so that they can help others improve their wellness.

Each year, Moving ME Forward gives back 10,000- 20,000 dollars for “People to help People”. It influences the community through financial aid, internships, mentor-ships, volunteer services and needed supplies such as sneakers and warm clothing. We hope to exceed that amount this year and watch these programs continue to positively impact our community.
