Posted: 10/26/2014

FORT KENT - On Sunday, October 26, 10th Mountain Outdoor Club wants runners of all ages to show their stuff at the Halloween Trail Run occurring at the 10th Mountain lodge in Fort Kent.

This trail running event, which rewards participants for running in costume with a time bonus, begins at 1 p.m. with the kids’ race for those 12 and under. Adults run at 1:15 p.m.

The top three male/female overall finishers, age class winners for the 10k, and top three male/female overall winners for the 5k will receive prizes that Cabela’s has donated.

Registration begins at 11:30 a.m. The $10 entry fee will benefit 10th Mountain trail grooming; kids race free, but organizers encourage parents to bring them in costume as well.

The 5k fun run/walk and 10k race will provide recorded times for entrants; those who run in full costume will receive a 15 second time bonus in the shorter race and a 30 second time bonus in the longer race.

The trail will consist of a combination of pavement, ski trails, and single track.

After the event concludes, a grill will be available for an informal cookout by participants. The event is B.Y.O.Meat, says lead organizer Jeff Dubis, and is alcohol-free.

VETERANS ADAPTIVE CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING PROGRAM
Posted: 03/26/2014
Cow barn

Wednesday, March 26th was our last day of skiing at Pineland.  It was a cold and windy one so we ended early, and took a tour of Pineland Farms in the Trolley. Had a great time touring the cow barns, cheese factory and equestrian center.

With our last day of Winter programming all we can say is Wow! What a winter!! We've had 12 weeks of skiing this winter and over 60 people participated this winter, either as a volunteer or participant. Over 45 were veterans and 30 were veterans with some sort of disability. What a great group of people and it's our been my extreme pleasure to work with all of you.
