Aroostook River Fun Run
This annual event began as a partnership between the Presque Isle and Washburn Rotary Clubs to celebrate the tremendous resource that connects these two communities . . . the Aroostook River.  The event was later expanded to include the options of a 5K run/walk or a bike ride, as well.  All three events happen simultaneously from different starting points, and each ends at the Presque Isle Fish & Game Club in Presque Isle, where lunch is provided to participants and awards are presented.

Paddle It:
Canoe or kayak the Aroostook River from Thomas Brewer Park in Washburn to the Presque Isle Fish & Game Club.  Travel by yourself, with a partner, or with your kids . . . have a fun morning on the River?  Awards provided in several categories.

Bike It:
Bikers depart from the MSAD#1 Bus Garage on Parsons Road and travel to Washburn’s Thomas Brewer Park and back, ending at the Presque Isle Fish & Game Club.  This is a non-timed event.

 Walk/Run It:
Whether you are a runner or want to get some exercise while walking with friends, this 5K is a great start to the season.  It begins at Machias Savings Bank, 9 Dyer Street, Presque Isle and ends at the Presque Isle Fish and Game Club.

Lunch & Awards
Plan to stay at the Presque Isle Fish & Game Club and join us for a free barbecue lunch, sponsored by Northern Light AR Gould Hospital.  Awards and recognition will be presented at this time.

Please note that rides will be provided as needed from this venue back to the location from which you started.
