Joe's team prefers a brisk walk to a 26.2-mile run, but nonetheless we appreciate the effort that goes into running a marathon. This Sunday, October 3rd, thousands of runners will be running the 2021 Gorham Savings Bank Maine Marathon, starting and finishing at Baxter Boulevard, between Forest Ave and Preble Street.
Every year, event organizers designate a local charity as the main beneficiary of race proceeds, and entrants are invited to make additional donations to that charity. There are seven main beneficiaries of 2021's race: Teens to Trails, Wayside Food Programs, Team Long Run, Port Resources, Pihcintu Multinational Girl Chorus, Shawnee Peak Adaptive Ski, and Spurwink.
Find more about the race and these wonderful nonprofits here. Joe's team wishes good luck to all the runners and maybe we'll see you at the finish line!
