The 2018 Clifford Park 5k Series.
The 2018 Clifford Park 5k Series begins on Monday May 7. We will run each week on Monday nights at 6:00pm, from the beginning of May through the end of September. Each week the race is only $5.00 to enter, or you could spend even less by purchasing a season pass or a punch pass.
All you need to do is show up at Clifford Park in Biddeford, Maine, hand us $5.00 and you’re ready to run in a professionally chip timed event. If possible, we do ask you to sign up ahead of time. You only need to sign up once for the whole season, even if you only plan to run once. It doesn’t cost anything to pre-register, and that way we have your information already in our system so you’re almost ready to go the first time you sign up. You can pre-register for free here.
The event is a “no-frills” type of race, so there are no shirts, no goodie bags, or any of the junk you don’t want to bother with. This is just a chance to get a professional time every week, at a reasonable price, it’s that simple!
About the Race
The course is challenging, but it’s also a beginner friendly trail run. The course will take you through the woods of the largest park in Biddeford, Maine. You will also never touch an inch of pavement on the entire course! You may encounter rocks, roots, water, and a bridge, but no pavement! See what the course is like by checking out the full course video.
For the runners who will be running with us all season long, or even just a few events, we can hold onto your bib so you don’t lose it. When you finish running, just place your bib in the “bib collection” bin. We’ll have it waiting for you next week!
