Virtual One in Five 5K Race

May 10

We are not giving up and we hope you won't either! We need your support more than ever during this time of uncertainty. The COVID-19 virus is preventing us from assembling at Thomas College on April 26 as planned BUT after careful consideration and overwhelming support from our very generous sponsors, we have made the decision to turn the 9th annual One in Five 5K to a VIRTUAL race!

You will be able to run or walk at your own pace and choose when & where you do it. You can go outdoors or use your own treadmill. It's up to you! You won't have to worry about where to park, where to put your things, or whether you're going to make it to the finish line by 9:00 AM on a Sunday morning! (Hey, we're trying to look on the bright side!)

You can literally participate anytime between April 26 and May 10.

The first 300 registrants who sign up before April 12 are still entitled to their free t-shirt but they need to be picked up. If you are unable to pick up a t-shirt in Winthrop Maine please select the appropriate option. This will help us when it comes time to place our order. Thank you for your understanding.

Together, we can help stop sexual violence. Coronavirus or not.

 

On Sunday, April 26, at Thomas College in Waterville at 9:00 am, we anticipate over 600 people running or walking in solidarity against the harsh reality of the impact of sexual violence in our Maine communities. Inspired by the current Maine statistic that an estimate of ONE in FIVE people in Maine have been affected by sexual violence (Muskie School of Public Policy, Maine Crime Victimizations Rates, 2011), the Sexual Assault Crisis & Support Center is hosting the 8th annual One in Five 5k race.

~This event is taking place in the month of April to honor Sexual Assault Awareness Month~

Friendly, leashed dogs are welcome!

Strollers are welcome!

Packet Pick Up: Packets can be picked up at our Winthrop office on Friday, April 24 between the hours of 8:00 and 4:30 or in the gym at Thomas College on Saturday, April 25th from 2:00 to 4:00 PM.

Sunday (race day): registration: 7:30 to 8:30 AM race starts: 9:00 AM

THE COURSE:

The race will begin at 180 West River Rd. In Waterville, Maine (Thomas College) and proceed north towards Kennedy Memorial Drive. The route turns around at Roland Street and back then past the start to Eaglewood Drive (the sports fields) and down the back way through campus to the finish line.

OUR CAUSE:

100% of the proceeds of this event will benefit the Sexual Assault Crisis & Support Center and their services for survivors of sexual abuse. A fully staffed and highly trained Sexual Assault Support-line available 24 hours a day, Support groups, justice system advocacy, school based prevention education, and Children’s Advocacy Center are all provided free of charge to the members of the Kennebec and Somerset counties’ communities in need. Hundreds of people utilize these important services every year.
