Save a Stray 5K & One Mile Walk

August 24 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join us and bring your friends, family, and pup for a 5K Run or One Mile Walk in the beautiful town of Freeport, Maine!

The 5K Run is a timed race that begins at 23 Depot Street in Freeport, wraps around Lower Mast Landing Rd, and ends again at Depot Street. The route is beautiful and scenic, with plenty of room for both people and dogs to run.

The One Mile Walk is a stroll throughout downtown Freeport, starting on Main St near L.L.Bean. It’s the perfect opportunity to gather friends, family and pets to enjoy a walk on a beautiful August day in one of Maine’s most popular towns.

By registering for this race, you are supporting Midcoast Humane’s mission to make life better for animals and people in our community. As a registrant, you can even create your own fundraising page, collect donations on behalf of our homeless animals, and earn rewards based on how much you raise!

And, if you’d like to participate in the event, but know you won’t be able to attend, you can register as a Virtual Runner. You’ll receive your own t-shirt, and the opportunity to participate and raise money for a cause you care about.

After the race, you can find us at L.L.Bean’s Dog Days of August Festival where we’ll be with special guests, dog contests, fun activities, and more!

For more information about the race and post-race activities, please visit SaveAStray.MidcoastHumane.Org.
