Bicentennial Distance Challenge Virtual Race
May 1, 2020 - October 17, 2020
Run, bike or walk. Traverse your favorite street or trail course, or take part on a treadmill. Travel around your neighborhood or any course of your choosing.
Get active and support history! The race kicks off on June 24, 2020, through October 17, 2020, run your race at your pace and on a course of your choice – as long as it’s seven miles! – and send us your finishing time. If you choose to run or bike, use a tracking method of your choice. If you are walking, feel free to split up those miles to complete them over a period of time that is healthy for you.
The benefit of a virtual race means YOU get to choose the best time and place to undertake your distance challenge!

You’ll earn a collectible Bicentennial Challenge-themed medal, receive a commemorative runner’s bib to wear during your exercise, and you’ll be invited to a “Finish Line” celebration in October (date TBD)!
What this fundraiser supports:
Due to COVID-19, many cultural organizations in our surrounding towns have been impacted by lower attendance, reduced support, and essential fundraising events that have had to be postponed or canceled. In the spirit of our tight-knit nonprofit community, the Brick Store Museum pledges to share all funds raised from this virtual race with our cultural nonprofit neighbors. If your organization would like to join this cause, please email Cynthia Walker at [email protected]
With the onset of COVID-19, we understand there may be participants out there who would like to undertake this challenge early. You are welcome to complete your race anytime after registration (you don’t have to wait for June 24th!).
Upon registration, the Museum will have packet ready for you to pick up (or, we can mail it to you – please make sure your contact information is correct), which includes your commemorative runner’s bib, challenge information, and a short history of Kennebunk’s Bicentennial. Upon completion of the race in October, every participant over age 16 will receive a participant medal.
Presented by our generous sponsor: Southern Maine Health Care
