Run for the Ocean 5K, June 3

Runners run past the Sea Shell Stage in Hampton Beach

By Dorothy Myers, Development Intern

Alrighty readers, mark your calendars and dust off those running shoes because Blue Ocean Society invites you to our 2nd annual Run for The Ocean 5k on June 3rd in Hampton Beach!  All proceeds benefit our mission to protect marine life in the Gulf of Maine through research, education and inspiring action!

With last year being our first ever Run for the Ocean 5K we didn’t know what to expect. After lots of hard work and preparation we had an awesome turn-out! If you missed out on last year’s fun, now’s your chance.

Here’s what to expect:

  1. Lots of friends, family, and coworkers—This is a great group event! We are even offering a discounted registration for teams of 8 or more.
  2. A 5k (3.1 miles) course with a view! You will be running (maybe walking, skipping, or jumping) half of the race on Hampton Beach’s sandy shores and half on paved sidewalk.
  3. Prizes in all sorts of categories—fastest runners, most litter picked up while running, best costume (let your imagination run too!) and most funds raised.
  4. Music and snacks!
  5. A stroll along Hampton Beach for a beach clean-up!

While being a racer is a fun way to support Blue Ocean Society you can really make a difference when you become a sponsor. Sponsors are a huge part of how Blue Ocean Society do the work we do. Presenting sponsors receive many benefits and opportunities for advertisement of their business.  To become a sponsor click here.
