Northern Border Running Club is once again hosting a fun and FREE 5-week run/walk series - “Run The North”. With a mix of old and new courses this year, the weekly 5k (3.1 miles) is set in a different Northeast Kingdom town each week and will take place on five Friday nights starting June 2, running through June 30.
During the week of the 5k, NBRC will post the start/finish location in each town, as well as a map of the 5k route, to the Facebook page and website. The Friday night 5ks will start promptly at 6:30 pm. As a reminder, you can participate in as many (or as few) of the free weekly 5ks as you'd like!
How to Participate:
If you plan on participating in ANY of the 5ks, you can help us speed up the day-of-race process by signing up ahead of time through this link. We will use the online sign up information to more quickly distribute bibs at the events, and bibs can be used for the the entire series. You can try to attend every 5k, or just the 5ks that work with your schedule - we've created the Series with flexibility in mind.
The 5k series and weekly run/walks are FREE. We will have an optional donation jar at each race which will help NBRC to cover costs, and fund future initiatives. Please arrive at the 5k between 5:45 - 6:15 to check in and get your bib!
For those participants who want to add some competition, NBRC will have a points-based scoring system which takes into account the fastest times and the most 5ks completed over the five weeks.
Divisions include: Adult Male / Adult Female / Under 15 Male / Under 15 Female.
Scoring: 1st place receives 3 points, 2nd place receives 2, and 3rd place receives 1.
Points awarded for each race, totaled after the final race.
