Two great runs going on this Saturday. Both of these outdoor excursions support great causes like the Bangor Humane Society and Spruce Run which help women and children who are victims of domestic violence. So I guess my advice is to follow your heart and you can't go wrong. Weatherman is predicting mid 60's and some clouds so get out there and have some fun.

 

On Saturday, May 7th, Epic Sports will be hosting the Rabbit Run, a 5 1/4 mile trail run or a 4 mile walk through Bangor City Forest with proceeds to benefit the Bangor Humane Society.

The course follows the East/West Trail, Bog, Raccoon, Moose, Bear, Lynx, Squirrel & Rabbit Trails. Expect uneven terrain in a beautiful setting! There will be rocks and roots and even a few hills. The walk follows the East/West and Rabbit Trails.

The 1st 100 Participants receive a race T-shirt and there will be prizes & goodies from Julbo, Outdoor Research, Merrell, The North Face, Mountain Hardwear, Marmot, Saucony, Clif Bar and More.
