The Lake Auburn Half Marathon event course includes beautiful views of Lake Auburn and the surrounding countryside, making this one of the most scenic half marathons in Maine to participate in.
All race proceeds from our events are generously donated to Moving ME Forward, a local 501c3 organization whose vision is to be a cultivator of social change in the area of health and fitness within our Maine communities. To achieve their vision, the mission of Moving ME Forward is to mentor, inspire and grow opportunities for individuals to develop and implement innovative strategies that will promote sustainable health and fitness changes within their communities.
Last year Moving ME Forward gave over $10,000 to programs that supported our local communities through monies raised during the Lake Auburn Half Marathon & 5K. These programs impacted the community through financial aid, internships, mentorships, volunteer services and needed supplies such as sneakers and warm clothing. We hope to exceed that amount this year and watch these programs continue to positively impact our community.
The Lake Auburn Half and 5K (LAHM) race planning committee have been working hard to reestablish our race and although we are not unaware or unaffected by what is happening around us, we are proud be able to host a safe LIVE event this year. As we do every year, we look forward to seeing all the walkers, runners, and spectators enjoying the course and our race. Our event will operate as follows:
Packet Pick up
Packet pick up will be held at Lost Valley on Saturday, September 10th from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
Although we encourage folks to stop by on Saturday evening, Race Day packet pick is also available from 7am-8am on Sunday at Lost Valley.
