Island Falls run/walk Saturday

15 years ago

The 17th annual Island Falls Summerfest 5K Run and 4K Walk will be held Saturday at  9 a.m., with the half mile race for ages 9 and under starting at 8:45 a.m.
Runners and walkers will gather at the Island Falls Municipal Building (Exit 276 off I-95) and the course will cover roads — paved and gravel – with a water station positioned at the halfway point. Preregistration is $10 and registration on race day is $12. Proceeds will be split between the AGAPE Food Pantry and Greater Houlton Christian Academy.
Race categories are 14 and under; 15-19; 20-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; 60-69 and 70 and over. Refreshments of water, watermelon and more will be served.
The top overall male and female finishers in the run and walk, along with the first to finish in each category will receive homemade pies. There will also be random drawings for over 40 door prizes, as well.
A big hit with the run/walk is the homemade pie auction held after the race, around 10:30 a.m.
