Wow!

This is Maine's best racing value. Food? Fab. Beer? Wonderful. Swag? Useful. Location? Gorgeous. Party? Unbeatable. This race is so good I hesitate to let the secret out. Oh, and there's wonderful striper fishing off the point.

BEST RACE EVER

This is literally the best race I have ever participated in. I have been running every year since I was single and living in Boston. I am married and live in CT now and we drive to Maine every year to participate. The route is great, scenery is amazing, and the post-race BBQ is THE BEST! I cannot say enough great things about this race. We camp at the campground, get up, run the race, eat amazing food, and then explore the area, go to L.L. Bean, go get Lobster Rolls... so much to do. I evangelize this race to all my friends.

Beautiful location!!

This race holds a very special spot in my heart. It was my very first race (the 5K) and I have returned to run the 10K as well. The race is very organized, in a really beautiful spot and I love that pies are given as the prizes.

Please consider an optional non sugar award for those runners who do not consume sugar. Looking forward to racing in Freeport. Thanks.

Fun Race

Always have fun at this race. It's casual. The course is not too difficult but fun. Especially love the trail part. Family oriented and enjoy the after party very much.

Great Experience!!!

It was a great race. Beautiful location and very well run. The great food and beverages were a very nice extra! Having run 5K's now in 40 states (on my way to 50), it is up there as a favorite!
