June is National Dairy Month, and the Maine Dairy Promotion Board is hosting the Cowabunga 5k.


What the heck is a Cowabunga 5k? Good question. The day starts with a family-friendly 5k race around Back Cove in Portland, beginning and ending at Fleet Feet on Marginal Way at 9 a.m. There will prizes and plenty of chocolate milk for the racers. Stick around for Family Dairy Day in the Fleet Feet parking lot from 10 a.m. – noon. You can meet dairy farmers, pet a calf, make some ice cream and more!

Admission to the Family Dairy Day is free and open to everyone. Cost to register for the 5k is $10 for children 17 and younger. Cost for adults 18 and older is $20.

Profits from the race will go to the Reiche Community School’s summer food pantry, which is part of the Milk2MyPlate program.

So let's go and get your cowabunga on!
