UMaine, fathers day 5k racesAll three races start at 7:30 in the UMaine Football stadium track. Wheelchair competitors start at 7:15AM. The course runs through the UMaine Campus, along the river and through Orono and Old Town.

There will be a special warm up area for Alumni and there will be a special Father’s Day treat just for Dad.

All runners will receive a finishers medal and tech singlet. Custom sport socks to the first 500 Marathon and Half Marathon registrants. Goody bags (Schwag bags) to first 700 at packet pickup.

This is my alma mater and really I want to do this marathon. But the BAA 10K is the same day and I’ve never missed the BAA 10K since it began.

Registration is $90 for the marathon, $70 for the Half and $30 for the 10K.

What a great way to show your kids the great University of Maine!

Part of the Rangeley Fitness Center Running Series 2015, the registration for the 5K or 10K is up to you. Print out the form, circle this race and fill in the amount you wish to donate to support the Fitness Center’s programs.

Very unique and very cool. And these are self-timed races, but you have to start at 9AM.

This run takes place around the beautiful Mingo Springs Golf Course. We have timed this event to match the magnificent bloom of the lupines that line 1⁄4 mile of this route. Running through head high blooming wild Lupines is the high point of this event. The rest of this trail run is well maintained on smooth terrain with a couple good climbs thrown in for a little challenge. The 10K is two loops of the trail. Self- timed. There will be a drawing for Fitness Center services.
