The success of the third annual Spring Running festival can be attributed to partnerships. The 2008 event had nearly twice the number of attendees from the previous year. The event continues to mobilize citizens and groups around the Augusta area to recognize the value of the Kennebec River. A similar event, the Penobscot River Revival, was created in part because of the demonstrated benefits of the Spring Running. Maine Sea Grant continues to support these events that help raise community awareness of the connections between people, rivers, and the sea.
