Join Blue Ocean Society for a virtual 5K as part of our World Ocean Week, presented by Kennebunk Savings!
All proceeds from the race will help Blue Ocean Society for Marine Conservation protect marine life through research, education, and inspiring action.
As this is a virtual event, you can run/walk wherever you prefer. Join us from your neighborhood, favorite trail, or even your treadmill! Once completed, upload your time and an image of your course (optional) to be eligible for prizes! We'll send some fun suggested course options prior to the race.
The first 150 registrants receive a free exclusive race t-shirt! Walkers are welcome at this event. Prizes will be awarded for fastest participants in several age categories, best costume, (new!) best pet costume, best fundraiser, and the participant whose course shape looks most like a whale! The race officially kicks off at 9 AM although you can start anytime on June 5.
If you'd like to help us further, we invite you to raise funds to help protect marine life through your own personal or team fundraising page. This additional fundraising is optional, but will allow us to do more to protect marine life in the coming year! Donations are tax-deductible. We greatly appreciate your support! Like many non-profits, we traditionally rely on income from in-person programs during the spring and summer. Many programs had to be canceled over the past year, so we greatly appreciate any support you can give.
Thank You to Our Major Sponsors
