NEW: This is now a Virtual Race!
You can still sign up for the Tax Day 5K, only now you can run it at your house, on your own schedule. You don't even have to wake up early! Just run 3.1 miles at your house or somewhere else where you can practice Social Distancing. Then take a picture and share it to our Facebook page. We'll take the best photos and they'll run in the Courier-Gazette. Plus, we'll have a prize for the fastest male and female runners and the best picture!
NOTE: We're in the process of converting this into a Virtual Race because, well, you've seen the news.
Benjamin Franklin famously said that nothing is certain, except death and taxes, but no one ever said we have to stand around and wait for the inevitable. So let's all run from the Tax Man!
Can you out-run our mystery Tax Man? We'll give you a 4 minute and 15 second head start. If you can finish in front of the "Tax Man", you'll win a prize!
Registration starts at 8am. The race starts at 9am. Runners and walkers of all ages are welcome!! This 5K is part of the 2019 Midcoast Race Series and organized by the local non-profit, One Community Many Voices.
NEW: If you can't join us on Race Day or you're concerned about the COVID-19 Pandemic and still want to participate, you can register for our Virtual Run. We'll have a special leaderboard. Register for the virtual run, run your fastest 5K, then email your result to our Race Director (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the best time between now and Race Day will win a prize (TBA). Bonus points if you run the actual course in Thomaston!
All the funds raised at the Tax Day 5k go directly to the 501c3 Non-Profit, One Community Many Voices (www.ocmv.org). OCMV provides gap funding through a model called: The Art of Good Fellowship – Paying it Forward One Neighbor at a Time. The model creates pathways that meet people where they are to resolve a barrier related to employment/skill building, youth aspirations, elderly independent living, transportation, or well-being as quickly as possible. OCMV is currently collaborating with Hospitality House, MCH, Rockland and Waldoboro Police Departments, Knox County Community Health Coalition, Trekkers, Pen Bay YMCA, and The Shields Project. OCMV is a place for these agencies to turn to for simple human solutions to barriers when they have no other means to help an individual that meets the criteria.
The 5K race is open to all and costs $25 on race day or $20 in advance. We'll have prizes for the fastest runners, the runner in the middle of the pack, and more!
