The Lake Auburn 7th Annual 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. We have partnered with Baxter Brewing Company as the location for packet pick-up in the afternoon/evening before the event. There will also be an opportunity on the morning of the event for packet pick-up at Central Maine Community College. Please visit our Running Resources & Tools page at www.lakeauburnhalf.org for local training information through Central Maine Conditioning Clinic –our proprietary sponsor for the Lake Auburn Half Marathon.
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.
