Reiche International 5kNext Sunday, October 17th is the 3rd Annual Reiche International 5K.

Last year there were 185 runners that completed the fast and mostly flat course for a race that celebrates all of the 30 different nationalities that attend Reiche Elementary School.

New this year is the Centipede Division, where teams of 3 or more runners will be tied together with their own rope about a stride length apart, and they have to complete the entire course tied together as they are. This is a great opportunity to just go out and have some fun, find some friends that are faster than you and let them pull you into a 5K PR!

The race takes place at Reiche Elementary School, in Portland, Maine. It starts right there on Brackett Street.

You’ll get a great tour of the west end of Portland, and the only hill is going up into the cemetery. Everything else is pretty flat and pretty fast. There was under a 16 and a half minute finishing time, I think it was 16:26, last year. So if you’re looking for a quick race then this is a good one to take a look at.
