BANGOR – The Rabbit Run is now accepting registrations for their race through the Bangor City Forest.
This year’s run is April 29th and will be almost five miles. Organizers said participants can also walk the track. They’re having the race at the end of April because they didn’t want to compete with Easter Sunday.
The event is put on by Epic Sports, a sportswear store in Bangor.
This year’s run will raise money for the Orono Bog Boardwalk. Epic Sports’s owner said fundraising for the boardwalk has gone on for three years, so the race is happy to step in and help.
“We’ve been a part of that community for a long time,” said Epic Sports Owner Brad Ryder. “So it’s really important to be actively engaged. But it also means our participants are paying into a registration that goes to a good cause.”
Anyone interested in participating in the race can register online or in-store.
It costs $20 to register ahead of time, and $25 dollars to register at the race.
