Race through the Woods

Racers will have two course options to choose from: a thirteen mile half-marathon, and a 5.5 mile race; both courses navigate through deep forests and beautiful trails.

Race fees are $35 for the half marathon, and $25 for the 5K until Sept. 1.

Space is still available in the fall Midcoast Conservancy Timber Frame course at Hidden Valley Nature Center, from Oct. 11-14. The course is a four-day, hands-on experience, where eight students will have the opportunity to build a complete timber frame and participate in every step of the process from harvesting trees to raising the finished structure.

Tuition is $450 for Midcoast Conservancy and MOFGA members, and $500 for all others. Scholarships may be available. Complete information and registration is available online at www.midcoastconservancy.org.
