Icy Elf 5K @ Waldoboro Village
Dec 22 @ 3:00 pm
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.

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.
