From Eric Mauricette, our Cobscook Bay Race Coordinator:

After much consideration and watching the continuing events unfold concerning Covid -19, we have decided to cancel the 30th Cobscook Bay Road Race on June 5th and in its place hold a new challenge for runners and supporters that was so successful during this past summer.

The decision is made not only for the health of our volunteers and participants but also for the community.  In this time of uncertainty and keeping the streak of 30 years of running Cobscook, Bold Coast Runners will host Cobscook Bay Road Races - Challenge 2021.

This challenge will allow runners and walkers to continue to support Down East Hospice Volunteers during these uncertain and challenging times. 

Please click on the REGISTER button to be directed to the Cobscook Bay Races page to see how you can still participate and support Down East Hospice Volunteers.  Be part of this creative alternative to participate in the Cobscook Bay Road Races - Challenge 2021.  Thank you!

*Once you are on the race web page, please give it a minute to load as a secondary page will pop up providing instructions for the new challenge. You will be able to register on this new page.
