The Hall Elementary School PTO will host its inaugural Planet Hall 5K race on Sept. 27. The event features a tree-lined course through one of Portland’s most attractive neighborhoods and nearly a mile of trail running on Portland Trails. Runners of all abilities, walkers and strollers are welcome. The race starts at 9 a.m. but there is a free one-mile fun run for kids at 8:30 a.m.

This event is a fundraiser for the Hall PTO, and will help provide hands-on learning opportunities and arts enrichment for students. Although this is the first race, the PTO’s goal is to have the event become an annual premier running event in southern Maine that runners will look forward to participating in year after year. Race amenities include:

• Chip timing by professional timers

• A fun course that avoids major roads and hooks up with nearly a mile of Portland Trails

• Post race refreshments from GrandyOats granolas and Rosemont Market

• Post race festivities including a performance from Hall’s steel-drum band, The Blueberry Pancakes

• A free One-Mile Fun Run for kids at 8:30 a.m.

• Prizes awarded for top overall male and female finishers, top male and female Hall Elementary staff finishers, and top boy and girl finishers from Hall Elementary School, grades K-5.
