About This Activity

Please join us for our inaugural Discover the Eastern Trail 5K – June 11th – 9:00 AM. Proceeds from this event benefit the Eastern Trail Alliance, an organization dedicated to building a 65-mile transportation and recreation greenway from Kittery to South Portland, Maine.

With 22 miles currently off road, our goal is to raise awareness and funds to fill in the gaps and continue the off road trail south from its current terminus at Alewive Road, Kennebunk down to Kittery.

The Discover the Eastern Trail 5k begins and ends at the Kennebunk Elementary School, 177 Alewive Road, Kennebunk.

Online registration will close on Wednesday, June 8th.  Registration limited to 250 participants. On site registration opens at 7:30 AM on Saturday, June 11th. Please plan to arrive for sign-in an hour before the race starts.

This is a tobacco-free, rain or shine, event. Registration fees cannot be refunded or transferred to a future event.

All proceeds will go to the Eastern Trail Alliance, a 501c3 nonprofit, to assist in completing the trail.

Event details and schedule

The route is entirely on the scenic, wooded off road section of the Eastern Trail in Kennebunk – out and back. There is a water stop mid-way with refreshments and water available at the end.   Award ceremony will be held in the parking lot of the Kennebunk elementary School.
