Weekly Back Cove 5K Series 2018
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 May 23rd and the last race happening on August 29th. **Please note - no WBCS race on July 4th!**
The race takes place on Back Cove Trail in Portland, starting to the left of the parking lot across the street from Hannaford, and ending by the soccer fields to the right of the same parking lot. Each race is limited to 250 participants.

This year, we will be holding a bib pickup during our store hours every day for a week prior to the Weekly Back Cove Series (bib pickup will start on May 23rd).
After the first race, you may pick up your bib prior to the start of the race, near the finish line, from 5:15 PM until the race start at 6:00 PM!
KEEP YOUR BIB AS YOU ONLY RECEIVE 1 PER SERIES!
The cost of the series is a flat rate of $30! ALL OF THE PROCEEDS FROM THIS RACE ARE DONATED TO PORTLAND TRAILS!
Over the past 2 years, we have been able to donate $30,000 to the maintenance of Portland Trails from the Weekly Back Cove Series alone!
June 6th is Global Running Day! Fleet Feet Sports stores across the country are holding 5K races, called the Big Run! We have paired our June 6th Back Cove Race with the Big Run, sponsored by Brooks! Every participant in the Back Cove Series on that day will receive a shirt if they stop by the store and show their bib, post race! Not only will there be t-shirts for the June 6th Back Cove participants, but we will be having a party immediately following Back Cove from 6:30 to 7:30 to celebrate running! All of this will be happening in the Portland Store, exclusively.
