2014 Aroostook River Fun Run
Time to dig out that canoe or kayak, dust off that bike, or lace up those running shoes and prepare for the 2014 Aroostook River Fun Run.
Here's some footage I snagged at a past river fun run.
The Presque Isle and Washburn Rotary Clubs are encouraging the public to get out and enjoy some exercise, pleasant scenery and to help a local charity again this year. Net proceeds from this year's fun run will benefit area Girl Scouts.
Sign up for the 8-mile race from Washburn’s Thomas Brewer Park to Presque Isle Fish and Game Club is on Saturday, May 17th. If you plan on attending you'll need to register from 8-9:30am, the race begins at 10:00am.
Entry fee is $10 per paddler in advance, $15 on race day or $25 per family in advance or $30 on race day. You have the choice of either paddling, biking or running along the river on the railed trail nearby.
You can snag a registration form in the Star-Herald or online at pirotaryclub.org.
If you plan on going you could score a kayak, awards or prizes. Free t-shirts will be available to the first 75 participants and lunch for all who join in.
