This race is in memory of Matthew Rairdon who's life was tragically taken in November 2013. When preparing to go to college, Matt was extremely appreciative to receive a scholarship to attend St. Joseph's college. The intent of this scholarship fund is to help other people who want to pursue a nursing education at St. Joseph's in the future. The first scholarship was awarded in the fall of 2014.  Now we award 2 scholarships each year.

We are pleased to announce that we will have a in-person run. We are also offering a virtual run option.  Because of the pandemic and the lifting of the state of emergency we have some rules of the road that are different:

  1. Packet Pickup will be done over 2 evenings, from 4-6 pm on July 14th and 15th at Mr. Bagel in Westbrook.
  2. If you feel ill or have been caring for someone who is ill please transfer your bib to someone else. There are no penalties for this.
  3. Please do not spit or blow your nose into the air along the route or in the park.
  4. We plan to have a water station on the course route this year, and you can feel free to carry your own water if you need to. A Grab-and-Go food box and water will also be provided in the park at the end of the race, as you exit the park.
  5. We will have an awards ceremony in the park.
  6. "Matt's Mile" this year will be a sprint, located in the park - more information to come.

This year we are doing something a little different with our charitable giving.  In addition to our scholarship giving, we will raise funds to make a donation to a deserving local organization - more info. to come!

Thank you!
