This year's Bar Harbor Bank and Trust Half Marathon and Fall 5k have been canceled. It was a difficult decision, but the safety of our participants and volunteers is our primary concern. Hurricane Lee is currently forecasted to pass close to Bar Harbor with damaging high winds, rain, and storm surge. In addition to safety on our course, we are concerned about the safety of those traveling to and from our event.
Since this is a weather emergency event, we can not offer refunds.
If you are a registered participant, please check your email for a message.
