Katahdin Trust is pleased to partner with the Town of Houlton Parks and Recreation Department and the Aroostook Musterds to once again sponsor the 34th Annual Wild Katahdin Trust Snow Run.

Katahdin Trust Co.

The Snow Run is happening in Houlton on Saturday, February 3rd during Moosestompers Weekend. This year, funds raised through the event will benefit the Houlton Recreation Department.

Runners and walkers alike are encouraged to take part in this fundraising event. Funds raised will stay in the community and benefit the Houlton Recreation Department in their effort to raise funds for some much needed playground equipment upgrades, including a sensory swing and wheelchair-accessible glider. This new equipment would ensure that all children have the chance to feel the exhilaration of moving through space in fun, enriching ways.

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 the Houlton Recreation Department, 128 Main Street, Houlton, ME 04730.
