Marathons & Triathlons

Lake Auburn Half, 5K Walk/Run, and Kids Fun Run

Join us for our 8th Annual Lake Auburn Half Marathon, 5K Walk/Run and Kids Fun Run at Central Maine Community College in Auburn, Maine. Through its partnership with Moving ME Forward (a nonprofit 501(c)3 founded in 2012), this event supports the local community through personal, business, and private contributions focused on supporting Maine communities to provide a healthier place to live.

The monies generated from this race provide the primary funding for the Moving ME Forward Grant Program. Moving ME forward provides mentoring, programming and resources to health and fitness professionals so that they can help others improve their wellness.  

Each year, Moving ME Forward gives back 10,000- 20,000 dollars for "People to help People." It influences the community through financial aid, internships, mentor-ships, volunteer services and needed supplies such as sneakers and warm clothing. We hope to exceed that amount this year and watch these programs continue to positively impact our community.

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.

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.

At GOTR, we celebrate the limitless potential of our girls and inspire them to be joyful, healthy and confident.   At each season's conclusion, the girls and their running buddies complete a celebratory 5k which is the culminating event for the girls participating in GOTR. Thank you for helping to make this event an incredible experience for our girls.

Program participants and coaches DO NOT NEED TO REGISTER.  They are already registered to be a part of the 5k as part of their program participation.  

Girls are encouraged to have a Running Buddy for the 5k who runs with, supports and cheers her on as she reaches her goals.  The Running Buddy Registration Fee is $15.

Girls can have up to two people register with the Running Buddy Fee.

The girls have worked very hard to reach this goal and the purpose of the event is to celebrate their accomplishments. The event is noncompetitive and will not be timed. It doesn't matter who finishes first or last; it is about setting a goal and achieving it!

The Spring 2019 5k is also open to the community as a fundraiser for our program.  

Adult Participant: $25
