Androscoggin Bank Run for Independence - Virtual Run

This year's Androscoggin Bank Run for Independence will be a virtual race. That way, we all stay socially distanced and still have a great reason to run outdoors on Sat. May 16.

All distances are still scheduled: 5K, 10K and 1 mile.

You'll post your race pictures (and running time from your device if you want) on our Facebook page.

Special bragging rights for some new fun categories by popular vote (Best Mask and more!). Register today and get ready for the 2020 Run for Independence!

Here Are Your Options:

The Run for Independence will be run virtually in 2020. All distances are open: 5K, 10K, and 1 mile. You'll report your achievements on the Facebook page for the event -- we'll send you instructions soon! Race proceeds support Independence Association, serving hundreds of Mainers with disabilities.

Even though you're not running the virtual event, you want to donate your registration fee to Independence Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that supports Mainers with disabilities (tax ID 01-0278024). We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at another event soon.


COVID-19 has thrown our original plans off course. Now it's on the course of your choice, wherever is most convenient for you.

We'll start our 3 races on the morning of May 16. You'll run your favorite 5K, 10K or 1 mile course, and send us your race day photos by email. We'll post them on our Facebook page. We'd love to see your colorful running gear, your amazing COVID 19 masks, your neighbors and friends cheering you on ... Can't wait to see your creativity!

This is still a race for everyone! Competitive runners join senior athletes and people with disabilities in Maine's most ability-inclusive running event. Your registration benefits health and wellness programs at Independence Association, serving kids and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
