35th Annual Wild Katahdin Trust Snow Run

The Wild Katahdin Trust Snow Run is a fun event that raises money to improve the lives of our neighbors and friends and that is something we are proud to stand behind.” Runners and walkers alike are encouraged to take part in this fundraising event. Funds raised will help the Houlton Recreation Department in their effort to purchase picnic tables for the Just for Kids playground, a welcome addition for both children and their caregivers!

The race course will take runners and walkers around the beautiful town of Houlton. Registration begins at 9 a.m. at the Millar Civic Center located in Houlton’s Community Park. Walkers will head out on a two mile course at 10:45 a.m. and the 5K run will begin at 11 a.m. Refreshments and a traditional chicken stew will be served after the event by Katahdin Trust employee volunteers. Cost is $12 per person; the first 50 people to register will receive a t-shirt or a hat. Age categories for the run include: under 14; 15-18; 19-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; and over 60. Awards will be handed out to the 1st Place male and female in each age group run; overall top male and female runners; the top five walkers to complete the walk; and of course, the “Mean Runner.”

Those who would like to participate in this year’s Wild Katahdin Trust Snow Run are encouraged to pre-register. Applications can be picked up at any Katahdin Trust location and are also available online.
