Destination Maine – 2014

Destination Maine Running Events – 2014

Here is my first installment of State by State Marathons and Half Marathons for 2014.

This time of year not too many people are thinking about races in Maine, unless you are a race director. Even a modest race takes many hours and days of planning. There are meetings to organize the committee or core group that is organizing the race. There are meetings with public safety officials and donations and sponsorships to be arranged.

Even the smallest race at the end of a gravel road took a considerable effort by someone to make happen. While you are looking at your race calendar for the summer and fall, I hope you will consider some of these races.

Changes from last year

To help with formatting I have combined the columns for Medal and Expo. Now I will just list Y or N. If a medal is given just to half marathon runners I will specify with “1/2”. I have 2014 dates for most races, but not all.
