Marine Mammals of Maine’s Ocean Commotion 5K

Wildlife Computers is excited to sponsor the upcoming Ocean Commotion 5K hosted by Marine Mammals of Maine (MMoME). In its eighth year, this annual event is a fundraiser for MMoME’s work to respond to stranded marine mammals and sea turtles in Maine, care for sick, injured, and abandoned seals from all over New England, study east coast marine mammal populations (including with satellite tags!) and educate about global marine mammal conservation.

This fun event offers both in-person and virtual 5K challenges. If you are local to the Midcoast Maine area, this dog-friendly event will take place on Saturday, October 15 at the Hermit Island Campground in Phippsburg, Maine and offers a professionally chip-timed event, timed and untimed walking options, and a one-mile kid’s fun run. The course takes runners, joggers, walkers, and their canine companions along trails by the ocean, offering stunning coastal and fall scenery and freedom from traffic noise.

Supporters who are not in the area can also participate in the festivities by taking part in the virtual 5K Everyday Challenge, which occurs October 9-15 wherever participants are located. Virtual participants are encouraged to walk, run, hike, bike, swim, paddle or participate in any activity that amounts to a 5K each day of the challenge.

The cost for the in-person event is $25 per person (same-day registration fees increase) and $10 for the virtual event. Proceeds from all events benefit Marine Mammals of Maine. For more information and to register visit
