Join us for the annual Lake Auburn Half Marathon, 5K Walk/Run and Kids Fun Run at Central Maine Community College in Auburn, Maine. Through its partnership with Moving ME Forward (a nonprofit 501(c)3 founded in 2012), this event supports the local community through personal, business, and private contributions focused on supporting Maine communities to provide a healthier place to live. The monies generated from this race provide the primary funding for the Moving ME Forward Grant Program. We pride ourselves in encouraging community members to pursue healthier lifestyles and every day we get to witness this positive impact through the ripple effect that our ongoing engagement has throughout our local neighborhoods.
Last year we gave over $10,000 to programs that supported our local communities through monies raised during the Lake Auburn Half Marathon, 5K Walk/Run and Kids Fun Run. These programs impacted the community through financial aid, internships, mentorships, volunteer services and needed supplies such as sneakers and warm clothing. We are overjoyed in our anticipation to exceed that amount this year and watch these programs continue to positively impact our community. This 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.
