Northeast Harbor Ambulance Service races set for Aug. 20

NORTHEAST HARBOR The 39th annual Northeast Harbor Ambulance Service 5-mile Road Race and Family Fun Walk are slated for Saturday, Aug. 20.

All proceeds will benefit the Northeast Harbor Ambulance Service, Inc. — a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation. The scenic race course will begin on Sargeant Drive. Walkers will start at 9 a.m., and runners will take off at 9:30.

Participants should park in downtown Northeast Harbor, and they will be taken to the starting line by bus from Great Harbor Museum on Main Street.

Some 200 runners competed in the race last year. The first 75 entrants will receive free T-shirts. Race day registration from 7:30 to 9 a.m. is $25, and pre-registration is $20.

In addition to the races, the ambulance service also is selling raffle tickets. Prizes have been donated by local businesses and include gift certificates to Asticou Restaurant, Milk & Honey, Colonel’s and Tan Turtle; merchandise from Wini Smart Studio, Shaw Jewelry, Kimball Shop, Swallowfield, Holmes Store, McGrath’s and The Romantic Room; and a Sea Princess boat cruise.

Times will be computed by Crow Athletics.
