Share this event
7 Commercial Drive
The Kennebunk Savings Rescue Run: Race for Marine Mammals features a popular 5k chip-timed trail race and un-timed walk through Odiorne Point State Park. Now in its seventh year, our popular Race follows the 5k cross-country trail route created by Jennifer Shultis, captain of Team Eastern Mountain Sports, 2006 US Adventure Racing National Champions. You’ll run through the forest, by the rocky shore, across a sandy beach, and alongside historic military fortifications.
The first 175 registrants for the 5k, excluding free participants, will receive a free official race t-shirt. Race shirts will be available for purchase for $10 at the time of registration. Prizes are awarded in age and gender categories from 6 to 70+, as well as, overall fastest male and female for the 5k (must run in the <8 min. pace/mile to qualify).
Back by popular demand, the Kids Fun Run features a 300 yard dash and a half mile run for children ages 12 and under. Every child that participates in the Fun Run wins a prize!
Whether you plan to race, run or walk with a group of friends or your family, you can choose a team name and register as a team at a discounted price. Teams must have 5 or more participants. We encourage you to get creative with matching costumes and fanfare!
After the race, the festivities continue with music, facepainting, and healthy ocean activities that highlight the important role a healthy ocean plays for all life on earth. You can do your part and participate in a clean-up with Blue Ocean Society at 11:00 a.m.
Be sure to keep an eye out for the ReVision Nissan Leaf and fellow ReVisionistas at the event!
