Our community – health, economy, way of life – depends on clean water. Polluted runoff threatens the health of Maine’s lakes, streams, rivers and bays. Runoff happens after any rain storm, and in Maine we see a lot of runoff in the springtime when the snow melts. Since 2012, we’ve brought a different kind of Urban Runoff to Southern Maine! Runners and walkers will hit the streets and trails in Portland for the annual Urban Runoff 5K race and walk to raise awareness of water pollution and raise money to support clean water education in greater Portland and Saco areas.
 
 
The date of the Urban Runoff was chosen to coincide with Earth Day and spring’s “first flush” when rain and melted snow wash pollution into our waterways.
 
 
The race is followed by the City of Portland’s Green Neighbor Family Fest, where families and community members enjoy hands-on activities about water, live entertainment, and have an all-around good time!
 
 
Join us – help preserve our communities, health, and Maine way of life by keeping our water clean!

Maine YogaFest 2018

East End Community School
195 North Street, Portland
 
The Maine YogaFest (MYF) is a wellness event was created by three friends in 2012 to bring together Maine and other New England communities to celebrate the healing powers of yoga and encourage a healthy, peaceful and compassionate way of living. The MYF is a premiere forum that provides a sense of community among yoga teachers, studios and practitioners. By raising awareness of the physical, mental and spiritual benefits of yoga, we hope to strengthen the yoga movement and culture in our beautiful State. The festival offers a diverse program allowing participants to try a wide range of yoga styles and techniques by a variety of teachers. We support the growth of the Maine economy by featuring local music, food and vendors throughout the weekend. In 2017 MYF partnered with an all-women's training group sheJAMs also founded by three friends to spread the word even further. 
 
Ticket prices start at $89 for a 3-workshop pass and $125 for a 5-workshop pass when registration opens and increase as the festival approaches.  Ticket price includes: three or five workshops, two Lunch & Learn Preentations open to all ticket holders, and a silent sit / meditation end of Saturday. $5 charitable donation to Sea Change Yoga and admittance to Vendor Village.  Ticket prices do NOT include service and processing fees charged by our online registration service provider, EventBrite. Fees are 2% + $0.99/per registrant + a credit card processing fee of 3% . Transportation, meals, and lodging are not included in ticket price.
