The third season of the RunBelfast race series has undergone a creative update to allow for social distancing. From June through October, five virtual fundraising races with a variety of distance options will be offered. Participants can register for individual races or sign up for the whole series at

The virtual race series allows participants to run and walk anywhere they choose, almost any time they want, in the week leading up to each of five “race days.” Using the honor system, race participants will email with their time and distance before midnight on race day. Participants will be published and everyone will be considered a winner.

Each event in the RunBelfast race series benefits one of the following organizations: Coastal Mountains Land Trust, June 6; P.A.W.S., June 20; Belfast Rotary, July 18; Waldo County YMCA, September 19; and Rollie’s for Shriner’s Children’s Hospital, October 6. There is hope that the final run can be held in person.
