Trail to Ale 10K Race/Walk
9 a.m. Sunday, September 18
Eastern Prom, Portland
$35
This annual fall 10K is popular for several reasons. There’s the scenic run/walk along the waterfront and around Back Cove, of course, but this race also includes finish-line beer (Shipyard) and pizza (Portland Pie). Portland Trails knew the power of running + beer + pizza before everyone was doin’ it. (But what a great trend, amiright?)

Dash for Dogs 5K & Walk
9 a.m. Sunday, September 18
Greater Androscoggin Humane Society, Lewiston
$25
Bring your dog, strutt your mutt on the Greenway Trail near the river during this annual event to raise funds for the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society and the care of over 4,000 dogs, cats and other companion animals. Run the 5K or walk the walk – whichever your dogs prefers!
