The Power of SHE 5K
at the Maine Women’s Expo
Nonantum Resort, Kennebunkport, ME
Something magical happens when women gather to run together
in the spirit of taking bigger steps toward a better you!
Bring your girlfriends, sisters, daughter, mothers, step-mothers, grandmothers, aunts and nieces. Men & children welcome too!
Come celebrate the power of what a woman can do. The Power of SHE. The day will be epic. Don’t miss out!
We are partnering with Maine Women’s Magazine to create a Fun Run to celebrate the Power of a Woman. This 5K will take place before the Maine Women’s Expo at the Nonantum Resort. Enjoy the Fun Run and then come to the Expo that will provide something for every Maine woman to enjoy and to learn about,” says Lee Hews, publisher of Maine Women Magazine. “Exhibitors will offer advice on everything from home decor to retirement savings to rock climbing.”
Yoga, salsa dancing, cooking demonstrations and other interactive exhibits are part of the expo’s lineup, including a range of DIY sessions, beauty tips, fashion, food sampling, wine tasting and, of course, shopping.
“Women (and men) of all ages will be able to shop among some of Maine’s best-known retailers selling everything from jewelry and yoga clothing to bath, beauty and hair products,” says Karina Napier, sales director and event organizer. “Plus, for those who are more inclined to interact than shop, our group of demonstrators will be a really engaging piece. Kids are more than welcome.”
Your registration will include your entrance fee into the Maine Women’s Expo.
$8 of each registration will go to our beneficiary: Crossroads.
SOME COMMENTS FROM OUR 2016 POWER OF SHE ATHLETES:
“Fantastic race! The course was well marked and staffed. The quotes along the path were my favorite part – something to think about and be inspired by. This was my very first 10k and it was a wonderful experience. Ready to sign up for the next one!!!! Thank you” Barbara W #72
“Great race! Loved running with some great women.” Emily F.
“I did not attend the expo, but the race was so much fun. At age 61 I am lucky to still be able to jog/slog. The race brought back memories in of running the Bonne Bell in Boston, the Legg’s mini marathon and the Avon half marathon in NYC in the 1980s. They were all women only races. Next year will be bigger ,better and just as much fun. Let’s get the whole state of Maine involved. More women moving just means a healthier state. Healthier families. Thank you for your efforts,” Margaret B
