From Our Editors

Now in its second year, the Black Bear Marathon doubles as a scenic exploration of the University of Maine campus. Starting in the UMaine football stadium, participants race along the river and through Orono and Old Town. They pass the famous Old Town Canoe Company and eventually return to campus on a paved bike path snaking through the woods. Beautiful as it is, the marathon's route isn't its only draw—here are a few more things to know before lacing up your sneaks:

  • The marathon and half-marathon courses are certified by USATF
  • The course will feature cheer stations, music, and plenty of water
  • All finishers will receive a medal
  • Race times will be kept with automatic chip timers
  • A professional photo service will snap pictures of the race and make them available for purchase
