The Running of the Black Flies 5k

Celebrate the oft maligned black fly by running with them at the height of black fly season in Maine (think running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain)! The race is a 5k out-and-back from The Pour Farm Brewery to the Vose Public Library in Union. Walkers also welcome! Registration includes tee shirt and free post-race pint of beer at the brewery (or non-alcoholic drink for runners under 21). Chip timed.
