Run for Fallen (Maine) Race is in Planning
The Maine "Run for the Fallen" race will take place on August 30th, 2009. Organizers are gearing up for the the race and it appears it will be bigger and better than last year. The race is held to show support to American troops fighting overseas and to honor the 55 war fatalities who are from or have ties with Maine. Five bib numbers from the Maine "Beach to Beacon" race are being donated to the "Run for the Fallen" race organizers to help offset the costs of the "Run for the Fallen" road race.
