Commit to Get Fit in 2020

St. Joe's Second Annual Commit to Get Fit is not your average 5k/10k. The earlier you register, the more support, information and FUN you get out of making the commitment to join us on September 27th. Whether your goal is to finish your first 5k or to earn a PR in the 10k, this is the race for you. All registered participants will be automatically enrolled in a series of emails and invitations, including group runs in and around Bangor, times and places to "Walk A Doc," and healthy training tips from our team of experts. You can participate in as much or as little of the pre-race training and education as you like. First-time 5k walkers and runners may benefit from the support and encouragement of meeting others to train before race day. Many of our more experienced runners will only see us at the finish line, where we will celebrate every finisher, from the fastest runner to the last walker. Commit to Get Fit with St. Joe's today!

The second annual, Commit to Get Fit 5k/10k will help victims of sexual assault get the care and support they need to heal. Our Sexual Assault Forensic Examiner (SAFE) Nurses have specialized training and help with the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of sexual assault, domestic violence and human trafficking survivors. St. Joe’s SAFE nurses are on-call 24/7, whenever (and often wherever) they are needed in our community. Sign up today to COMMIT your support to St. Joe’s SAFE nurses!

Course Map!


The 5k and 10k courses both start and finish at Broadway Park in Bangor.  Both go into downtown Bangor, go along the Kenduskeag Stream and go through the Little City neighborhood in Bangor.  The 10k also runs through the Husson University campus.  These are beautiful courses that will be a delight for walkers and slower runners and will be challenging for those seeking a tough race.  Below are photos of Husson students who volunteered on their campus in 2019 to greet and support 10k runners and of runners enjoying the trail that runs along the Kenduskeag Stream.


Unlike most 5k and 10k races, this course features a mix of city running, rural running and trail running.


It's all about the T-shirt...

Those who register before September are guaranteed of receiving a T-shirt in their size.  We will order extras, but there will be no guarantee you'll receive a shirt or one in your size for registrations that were made after 9/1/20. And for those who let us know by September 1st  that will be your first 5K, we will have a special shirt for you. If you are an experienced runner, we'd love to see our race T-shirts around town in the off-season. Either way, you know you want the shirt.

Start and Finish in Bangor's Broadway Park.
