Team Long Run’s Third Annual “Frozen Five” 5k race to be held at 11:30 a.m. on Feb. 15 on Highland Lake, Bridgton. Team Long Run, a Bridgton-based 501 c3 nonprofit, is pleased to invite runners, snow-shoers, and Nordic skiers to race our annual 5k on Highland lake as part of the Maine Lakes Winter Carnival.
“Run, ski, or snowshoe… just get there!” is our unofficial slogan. Athletes can choose whatever works for them! Prizes will be awarded in all three categories. We’re pretty sure this is the only race of its kind. A children’s half-mile course on the lake will be marked for kids.
The entry fee for adults is $20.00. Kids up to 18 enter for free. The proceeds from the race go directly to fund Team Long Run’s programs in the area. TLR’s mission is simple: “Running is an instrument of change. We use it to help kids lead lives of selflessness, satisfaction and success.”
Team Long Run delivers weekly run clubs at several local schools at no cost to kids, families, or schools. The race starts at 11:30, but we recommend athletes arrive to the Highland Lake beach park by 11:00 to sign in or register. Water and snacks will be provided, and limited-editionT-shirts will be available for purchase.
