The 6th Annual Superhero 5K is coming to Ogunquit!

The Superhero 5K & Kids Fun Run is a family friendly event in support of Rett’s Roost, a sanctuary for families that have experienced childhood cancer and child loss, in Ogunquit, ME. After a one-year hiatus, we are bringing back our most favorite fundraising event–the Superhero 5K and Kids Fun Run, this time on Ogunquitfest weekend on the beach followed by an afterparty with magic and awards at the beloved downtown Leavitt Theater. Early-Owl Registration is now open. We cannot wait to gather with you in-person (virtual option available too) for a pre-Halloween celebration (all types of costumes encouraged) of all the brave kid heroes that have faced cancer and their fearless, loving families.

Registration is Open!


Get a sweet tank top

These amazing tanks and kids tees are available for purchase this year through 9/22 and select sizes on race day. Thanks to Erin Thomas for another super fun superhero design. All sponsors will be listed on the back.

The Beach Loop!

We will gather at Main Beach (parking free for runners), between 11am-12pm in our finest, most intimidating and ambitious costumes. There will be real-life superheroes and activities for the kids. At 12, we’ll kick off our Kids’ Fun Run on the beach. There will be 3 heats: 3&4, 5&6, 7&8. The older they get, the farther they run. Every kid gets a ribbon and official race bib. The 5K will line up next, and will take off about 12:30 from the big ramp near Splash restaurant. Runners will head up Beach St, turn right on River Rd, left on Hoyts Ln, right on Rte 1, up to Beachfire Restaurant. From there, racers will turn down Ocean Ave towards Footbridge Beach. Over the footbridge and straightaway down the beach back to where we started!

Magical After-party at the Leavitt Theatre

The beloved and historical downtown Leavitt Theatre will graciously be opening its doors to Rett’s Roost race participants and families for a magical post-race after-party.
