Welcome to 5K Sports Race Management, your source for Race Management Services.  As a runner and experienced Race Director, we operate a race event management business that services in Maine, New Hampshire & Massachusetts. We are involved with over 170 events in 2024.      

One of the special aspects of most races is that they usually benefit local charities and help others and our race event management business allows us to participate in a sport that we love and help other Race Directors make their events successful.

5K Sports Race Management is a local company that is based upon the belief that all races deserve to be timed professionally for a reasonable price, which leaves more money for your charity, and that is what is important.

We have been timing & managing events in New England since 1995.  Road races, cross country, nordic skiing and swimming events.  We have been in business for 29 years.

​​Our Mission Statement

Thank you for putting on such a great race! I found the course to be almost perfect!

I did the Maine Half Marathon last fall and towards the middle we have the hills,

so this race was delightful! You had a great packet pick up, a place for us to get

warm before the race, food and warm bathrooms! I can’t think of anything else

that could have been done to make racers comfortable! 
Great job, see you in 2024!

On the Run Half Marathon

Old Orchard Beach, ME
Thank you for inventing the flattest race in the whole world! That's why I love this race so much!

There are no stupid hills to slow me down and ruin my time. I just got a PR today!

This is the flattest half marathon that I've ever been able to find.

All the other ones that claim to be "flat" always turn out to have lots of hills.

I just did this race last September and of course I had to come back this year.

Thank you again for having such an awesome, hill lacking race, and see you next year!
