The Maine Edge published a University of Maine news release about the university hosting its first full and half marathon this summer as part of the Black Bear Race series. The inaugural Black Bear Marathon and Half Marathon will take place June 21. Campus Recreation also is offering marathon training for runners who are interested in participating, but would either prefer some coaching or training with others. Starting in February, participants will run weekly as a group with an experienced trainer and will be given a detailed training plan, handouts on various race topics and $10 off race registration.
