Katahdin Trust is partnering with the Town of Houlton and the Aroostook Musterds to once again sponsor the 33rd Annual Wild Katahdin Trust Snow Run, happening in Houlton on Saturday, February 4th during Moosestompers Weekend.

Katahdin Trust

“A community that works together, thrives together,” said Krista Putnam, Katahdin Trusts Vice President of Marketing. “Each year, the Wild Katahdin Trust Snow Run supports a great cause in the community, and that’s something that we stand behind.”

Runners and walkers alike are encouraged to take part in this fundraising event. Funds raised will stay in the community and benefit the Bridge to Hope organization and their effort to raise money for cancer treatment and research but to also to raise awareness of the amazing number of people in our own back yard putting up a fight against the toughest foe they will ever face.

The race course will take runners and walkers around the beautiful town of Houlton. Registration begins at 9 a.m. at the Millar Civic Center located in Houlton’s Community Park. Walkers will head out on a two mile course at 10:45 a.m. and the 5K run will begin at 11 a.m. Refreshments and a traditional chicken stew will be served after the event by Katahdin Trust employee volunteers. Cost is $12 per person; the first 50 people to register will receive a t-shirt.

Age categories for the run include: under 14; 15-18; 19-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; and over 60. Awards will be handed out to the 1st Place male and female in each age group run; overall top male and female runners; the top five walkers to complete the walk; and of course, the “Mean Runner.”

Those who would like to participate in this year’s Wild Katahdin Trust Snow Run are encouraged to pre-register. Applications can be picked up at any Katahdin Trust location and are also available online. Checks can be made payable to Town of Houlton and mailed to this year’s Race Director, Chris Rines at 4 North Street, Houlton, ME 04730.
