Sub 5 Track Workouts Begin May 29

Sub 5 Summer Track Workouts will be held every Wednesday at 6 PM and will begin on May 29 at the Brewer Track behind the Brewer Community School. Sub 5 Track Club membership is required. Membership forms are available at Sub5.com, and if you so choose, you may register for membership online. Paper membership forms will also be available at the track Wednesday evening.  Workouts will continue through the last week of August.

Welcome From The President

Welcome to the Sub5.com webpage! As the new club president, I’m pleased to join a hard-working volunteer organization with an experienced and tireless board. We hope to continue to nurture the running community in Eastern Maine.
The club sponsors local road races as well as the Sub 5/Tradewinds MarketPlace Road Race Series, organizes group runs, and awards scholarships for local high school students. Please join us for a group run on Monday nights at 5:30 starting by the Sea Dog Restaurant in downtown Bangor. 
Follow the club on this website as well as Facebook for information about local races or local high school results. 
While many Sub 5 “services” are free, please consider joining the club with a membership.  Membership benefits include discounts to local businesses as well as free entry into the Walter Hunt July 4 race sponsored by Sub 5. Proceeds from memberships help pay for the scholarships and the annual awards banquet.
Perhaps the greatest feature of Sub 5 is the network it provides. Be it encouragement for your next run or receiving all the friendly tips from runners who have been there before. We love celebrating everyone’s weekend run on Monday nights or asking when your next race is. There’s also conversation about workout plans, injuries and equipment. Joining a Monday night run, or attending a summer track workout are great places to not only have fun running, but also hear what everyone is doing to maintain their fitness. Better yet, a group activity is perfect for staying motivated. Thanks for checking out Sub 5 and see you on the run.

Sub 5 President
