Blog : Lace Up Your Sneakers to Support the Great Bay Stewards

By Katelyn | Sep 21, 2015 | in

Get outdoors and enjoy all that fall in New England has to offer at the Great Bay 5K! The Great Bay 5K is a popular race in the seacoast area and boasts a fast pace, mostly downhill course. This race serves as an annual fundraiser for the Great Bay Stewards to support their research and education programs.

Registration is only $25 until October 21, and not only includes one race, but a race within the race, costume contest, and post-race treats and massages. Click here to register today and get a free shirt if you register before September 24!

This year, the Green Alliance is sponsoring a prize for a lucky runner of the Great Bay 5K. While the fastest runners are usually the ones to take home the trophy, we want to thank everyone for running and raising money to support the Great Bay Stewards; therefore, the GA environmental gift basket will go to a randomly drawn runner in the bottom tier of overall finishers.

The Great Bay 5K is sure to be fun for the whole family with a free Fun Run open to children ages 2-10, as well as a costume contest for participants with the best costume. The Great Bay 5K has a unique race-within-a-race called the Mackenzie Mile. The first male and female racers to reach the 1 mile mark (and who finish the race at a similar pace) will each receive a $50 award.
