This race will be a fun way to spend and hour or so of your Thanksgiving morning engaged with the community, supporting a local organization, and burning enough calories to justify a third or fourth piece of pumpkin pie.
The race is scheduled to begin at 9 am, with same day registration beginning at 8 am. Registration and race start is at the Gem Theater across from Western Maine Supply on Cross St, Bethel, ME.
The race will meander through Bethel Village with a challenging climb up Eden Ridge Condominiums switchbacks and will end at the starting location.
All proceeds from this event will benefit the UMaine 4-H Camp & Learning Center in Bryant Pond's "Harvest for Health" gardening and nutrition program. We will have a bin available for non-perishable food items and encourage participants to bring any items they wish to have donated to local pantries.
Both registration for the race and awards for the race will take place at the Gem Theater!
If running isn't your thing, there are plenty of ways to be involved. We are in need of race day volunteers, as well as encouraging by-standers to cheer on the runners.
