The Maine Celtic Celebration added a new race event in 2014, open to all. Inspired by the flag of the Isle of Man, one of the Celtic Nations, the Manx Three-Legged Uphill Race is a new twist on an old favorite. It’s really pretty simple. Contestants of all ages pair up, strap one leg each together, and race up “Cheese Roll Hill” to the finish line at the top. Our inaugural running of the race proved it’s not as easy as it sounds (if you think it sounds easy). But it CAN be done; therefore it SHOULD be done this year on Saturday, July 16th at 2:50 PM.
The race will be held in various heats, depending on the number of entrants, including: Youngsters, Youths, Teens, Adults, and Geezers. (FYI, Oxygen will NOT be available at the finish line.) There is no fee to enter and registration information will be available at the Celebration Store on Saturday morning, July 16. The race will be run rain or shine, and the only real rule is no cleats allowed. Prizes will be awarded.
