Finding our Way Down East starts next week!

By Wayfinder Schools | May 24, 2021

Beginning next week, Wayfinder Schools will host their first annual Finding Our Way Down East virtual race from Kittery to Calais. Starting on Memorial Day and running through to Labor Day, race participants will hit their favorite trails, roadways and waterways. They will hike, bike, walk, run, swim, canoe and kayak, logging miles online as they go, virtually making their way along the entire Maine coast from Kittery to Calais.

Participants may join from all over Maine and beyond as they log miles from their local trails, lakes or gyms. This is a great opportunity to get outdoors and get some exercise all while supporting Maine youth who need a second chance at high school graduation.

Each participant has the opportunity to sponsor themselves and to be sponsored by others. Race participants may join as individuals or form teams with friends, family and co-workers. All are encouraged to post photos from their favorite spots and to help encourage others to the finish line. Those who prefer a shorter route will have the option to sign up for one-month races in June, July and August.

All racers will receive event tee-shirts. Maine-themed prizes will be awarded to the top individual and team fundraisers. Finding Our Way Down East is generously sponsored by Down East Magazine, Lone Spruce Creative, R.M. Davis, Old Port Advisors, LT’s Inc., Philbrook & Associates, Clark Insurance and CedarWorks.
