"A Harbor Fest Tradition"
Circumstances necessitate that this year’s Rotary Bug Run 5K Run?Walk be a virtual event. The date of the run remains August 15, 2020, as previously advertised. Originally scheduled to be run on residential streets and along the waterfront of Belfast, Maine, this year you can run a route of your choice over a distance of your choice, 1 Mile, 5K, 5 Mile, or 10K. Further, you can run anytime Sunday thru Event Saturday of the week of the event date.
Following your run, we ask you to provide your first and last names, distance run, the time of your run, and location (e.g. Lucy Park, Linus Pond, streets of Laredo) by selecting the Contact button at https://www.runbelfast.org and entering your information. We ask you to provide this data no later than midnight of the event date. We will compile a list of all runners and their times to be published in the local newspaper.
The Rotary Bug Run 5K Run/Walk is a charity event that supports local needs, many further impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Your contribution to this much needed support is vested in the fee you pay for the run. Thank you. You have the option to purchase for $17 a commemorative runner’s cap. The cap will be mailed to you the week following the event.
