Virtual run goes the distance

More than 200 keen runners participated in last weekend’s first ever virtual version of Run The Maine with some very impressive times achieved.
Some seasoned runners even took on all four run distances – the 21 km half marathon, 15km, 10km and 5km during the 60 hour-long event.
With entry ticket sales exceeding the $5000 mark, Run The Maine director Gavin Krasner says he’s more than pleased, particularly given there was a moment when it was uncertain the event would even happen due to the impacts of Covid on large gatherings.  See the Mail for more.
