Celebrate the oft maligned black fly by running with them at the height of black fly season in Maine (think running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain)! The race is an out-and-back from The Pour Farm Brewery along Middle Road in Union. Walkers are welcome. Registration includes tee shirt + free post-race pint of beer at the brewery (or non-alcoholic drink for runners under 21) + reggae dance party at the finish! This is a chip timed race.
