Sign up for River Jam 5K

Curt Moore of Green Bay, Wisconsin has signed up for the River Jam 5K Road Race that takes place in Biddeford Saturday, Sept. 15. The race will mark 30 states in which Moore has completed a race.

“I’ve been a runner for over 50 years. About 10 years ago, after reading an article about runners that had run a marathon in every state, I came up with the goal to run at least a 5K in every state,” Moore said.

He uses the website RunningInTheUSA.com to choose races, and that’s where he found the River Jam 5K.

“My wife Mary and I have enjoyed using the quest as an excuse to travel to every state. I have run everything from a 15 participant 5K race in Maryland to the Boston marathon in Massachusetts. We enjoy seeing people running or walking in the events because a healthy lifestyle is something we strive for.”

“I’m 61 years old, so perhaps running is a more appropriate term than racing. But I do enjoy challenging myself to finish in the top 10 percebt of participants in events and being competitive in my age group.”

Interested runners and walkers can join Moore at the River Jam 5K by registering up at RunSignUp.com. All River Jam event details can be found at RiverJamFest.com.
