The Kilted Canter 5K Road Race/Walk

The long-standing tradition of a Celtic Celebration 5K road race continues with this year’s running of the 8th Annual Kilted Canter 5K Run on Saturday, July 20 at 8:30 a.m. Sponsored by the Belfast Rotary Club, the run will begin at Belfast Area High School and cover the same relatively flat course as in the past, through the lovely, picturesque, and proudly historic neighborhoods of Belfast, Maine, for a distance of five kilometers or 3.1 miles. Everyone is welcome to join from those looking to run a personal best to families wanting to share a healthy run/walk. And while the wearing of a kilt is optional, it is encouraged in keeping with the Maine Celtic Celebration weekend festivities, July 17 – 19, 2020.
