We hope to see you at our 10th anniversary event in 2021!
The Lake Auburn Half Marathon event course includes beautiful views of Lake Auburn and the surrounding countryside, making this one of the most scenic half marathons in Maine to participate in. Although the majority of our spectacular half marathon course remains unchanged, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the start and finish areas have been moved to the Lost Valley Ski Resort, which will also host our packet pick up this year.
All race proceeds from our events are generously donated to Moving ME Forward, a local 501c3 organization whose vision is to be a cultivator of social change in the area of health and fitness within our Maine communities. To achieve their vision, the mission of Moving ME Forward is to mentor, inspire and grow opportunities for individuals to develop and implement innovative strategies that will promote sustainable health and fitness changes within their communities.
Last year Moving ME Forward gave over $10,000 to programs that supported our local communities through monies raised during the Lake Auburn Half Marathon & 5K. These programs impacted the community through financial aid, internships, mentorships, 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.
