The Weekly Back Cove Series is returning for 2022!
The Weekly Back Cove Series consists of a multitude of 5K races held on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 PM, with the first race starting on June 1st (Global Running Day) and the last race happening on August 31st.
The race takes place on Back Cove Trail in Portland, starting to the left of the parking lot across the street from Hannaford (about a 1/4 mile up the trail), and ending back at the same parking lot. For more detailed information, please see the course map at the bottom of this page. Each race is limited to 200 participants.
