The Wanakee Wilderness 5k is a challenging but exciting course through the beautiful hills and valleys of the Lakes Region. You can’t beat the view from Look Out, the granite rocks of Lemon Squeeze, and cool breeze off of Lake Pemigewasset.
We are gearing up for this year’s event. We had a record number of participants and a full day of fun last year! We are planning for more of the same. Wanabear was a great help last year and now he is passing along the baton. We would like to introduce “Amos” the Raccoon as this year’s mascot. He knows Wanakee like the back of his paw and is notorious for some of his impish antics…but we love him just the same! Come join Amos and the rest of us for the 5th running of the WW5K.
Race Date: August 18th, 2018
Registration: 7:30 am Start: 9:00 am
Online Registration will begin in April
Proceeds from the WW5K benefit Wanakee, a 56-year old summer camp. Race fees and donations from participants like you provide capital for facilities upgrades and support scholarships to those in need.
