The Savage Family Turkey Trot 5k ( Run/Walk) @ Bug Light Park
Nov 28 @ 9:00 am
The Savage Family Turkey Trot 5k ( Run/Walk) @ Bug Light Park | South Portland | Maine | United States

What’s more fun than a holiday race?? Racing the 3rd Annual Savage Family Turkey Trot 5k at Bug Light, on Thanksgiving morning !!! This going to be a fun family event !!! This is the third annual run of the Turkey Trot to honor Nathan Savage. Nathan was an avid runner, biker, triathlete and family man. He lost his life to a fatal heart attack on July 2, 2016. This was just three weeks before he was set to compete in his first full Ironman event, and just months prior to his 40th birthday. This year’s event will fall on November 28th..

The proceeds will stay local and be given to the Nathan Savage Memorial Fund, a fund created by the Savage Family with the South Portland Community Center that gives financial assistance to any child wanting to participate in one of their youth development programs. One of Nathan’s dreams was to help kids get off the couch and get out there and be active and healthy and we thought this was the perfect way to honor his dream. So, prepare to have that extra helping at dinner, or that second ( or third) piece of pie and join us!!! Run, walk, bring your friends, your family and maybe even your well behaved dog ( on leash, of course). Start your Thanksgiving day off and support an amazing family and a great cause.

T-shirts to all those donating $20 or more before 11/15/2019.

Fundraising is optional, and there is no minimum amount to raise, but we hope you will consider creating a team and soliciting donations. Gather your friends and co-workers to join you. All proceeds directly benefit the Cancer Resource Center of Western Maine and are tax deductible.

CRCWM was founded in 2015 as a place where those affected by cancer can go to participate in a variety of wellness programs and find supportive resources as they deal with the challenges of cancer.

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.
