ROCKLAND –  Formerly known as “Thomaston Trek”, Trekkers' annual 5K has run to Rockland, starting and ending at its own new location. The entirety of the counterclockwise 5K loop will include a road shoulder or sidewalk, and there will be volunteers with flags to guide the way. Racers can also participate virtually on the same day and time, just as last year.

Registration for the race is now open. Each ticket comes with a free t-shirt and this year’s design was created by 11th grade Trekkers student, Ella Russomano. Prizes will be awarded to top finishers in both virtual and in-person races as well as non-student fundraisers. Breakfast treats will be generously donated by Flipside Coffee and enjoyed while awards are distributed after the race.

Join us for this fun family event and support local student programs! All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Trekkers and students will be fundraising toward their dues. (Dues help pay for the cost of the program and go toward transportation, lodging, meals, and activities for students while on expedition and throughout the year.)

When: June 12. Check-in: 7:00AM – 8:00AM, Start: 8:30AM

Where: Trekkers – 325 Old County Road, Rockland, ME
