BANGOR – Did you see a lot of runners in downtown Bangor Sunday morning? That’s because it was the 14th Epic Finale 5K.
Runners gathered at Epic Sports in Bangor, who host the event.
The race route itself started and ended in West Market Square.
The race organizer and owner of Epic Sports, Brad Ryder, said this started as a New Year’s Eve event but has morphed into a Sunday morning run over the years.
He said this time, it brought out more than a hundred people.
“The runners have trouble finding runs during the winter time. So that’s a little bit of how this got started as offering an event to the running community,” said Ryder.
He said proceeds from Sunday morning’s run are going to the food pantry at the Hammond Street Congregational Church.
