HOB Summer Festival 5K, 9 a.m., Saturday, June 22, 2013
Register online through active.com now! Start your Saturday morning of the La Kermesse Summer Festival weekend with an exciting road race/walk that tours Biddeford’s downtown. This is HoB’s third 5K event, now held during La Kermesse, building on our Healthy Main Streets theme! Whether you love a competitive, challenging course or just want to get some friends together to walk the course, you are welcome to join this fun event! Registration is $20 (or $25 on the day of the race). Register by June 12 to receive a free tech t-shirt. All participants receive a free La Kermesse crepe at the finish line!
We hold this race each year honoring its founder Kaye Richardson, who owned Forever Fit. Kaye passed away from Colon Cancer in November 2011. Read more about Kaye and the Colon Cancer Alliance here.
