Urban Runoff 5K
EVENT DATE: Apr 22, 2017
We’re bringing a different kind of Urban Runoff to Southern Maine! Runners and walkers will hit the streets and trails in Portland for the 6th annual Urban Runoff 5K race and walk to raise awareness of water pollution and raise money to support clean water education. The date of the Urban Runoff was chosen to coincide with Earth Day and spring’s “first flush” when rain and melted snow wash pollution into our waterways.
The race is followed by the City of Portland's Green Neighbor Family Fest, where families and community members enjoy hands-on activities about water, live entertainment, and have an all-around good time!
Oh, and did you hear?! The Urban Runoff was named one of the most fun and unique races for 2016 by best5ks.com!
Join us – help preserve our communities, health, and Maine way of life by keeping our water clean!
