Road race planned for Lamoine’s 150th birthday

LAMOINE — As part of the town’s 150-year birthday celebration, Lamoine is planning a road race to be held this fall at the Lamoine Consolidated School.

The Lamoine 4-Miler, also known as “Robin’s Run,” will honor Robin Emery, a Lamoine native and staple of road races throughout Hancock County and Downeast Maine for years. The race course will follow the one Emery ran as she lifted off her distance-running career.

The race is scheduled for Oct. 5 with walkers set to begin at 9 a.m., runners beginning at 9:30 and children beginning at 9:45. Prizes will be awarded to the No. 1 and No. 2 male and female finishers in each age group, and race T-shirts will also be made available for purchase.

Registration for the race will be available on-site, though runners can also register via Lamoine’s town website. Costs are $3 for the kids’ run, $10 for the 4-mile run alone and $15 for the 4-mile run and a post-event barbecue. Checks should be made payable to Lamoine 150! and sent to Robin’s Run, Town of Lamoine, 606 Douglas Highway, Lamoine, ME 04605.

For more information, contact Robin Emery (667-9219) or Gordon Donaldson (667-2382) via phone or go online to the Lamoine150! Facebook page.
