Bands on the Run Half Marathon is back for 2nd Year this June 2013

The 2nd Annual Bands on the Run is set to take place on 6/23/2013!

The race starts off in-between two old mill buildings that have been renovated and repurposed for modern uses. In the first 3 miles runners tour the heart of the cities of Lewiston and Auburn. Most of the roads in the city along the route will be closed to traffic. Runners then follow the edge of the Androscoggin River on the Auburn side and then into a more rural setting by Mile 6. There are four river crossings in total and magnificent views of the Great Falls. This year the course includes more trail running along the Lewiston side of the river. In the final push to the finish line runner cross the river via an old railroad trestle bridge. As always there are bands along the route to keep runners motivated. A Zumba dance group will be featured at the start line before the race to get runners pumped up. The festival at the end features a live band plus free food and beer. There will also be a kids fitness course and specialty food vendors.

And for 2nd year, Fifty States Half Marathon Club members receive a discount to this event!
