WINTERPORT - Runners will be burning up the pavement in Winterport this Saturday for the town's first ever Pants on Fire 5K Beer Run/Walk and Kids Fun Run. The race is a fundraiser to help the town's all volunteer fire and rescue departments purchase gear and other necessities for the job. Jodi Rapoza-Rowe, owner of Zeke's Dog Retreat in Swanville, is one of the race's sponsors and a participant.

"The volunteer departments around here don't have a lot to work with, so I wanted to get out and show support to help them get the equipment they need," Rapoza-Rowe said. "And I've always wanted to do a 5K. The last couple ones I've signed up for I haven't been able to do because Zeke's has been so busy, so this is the one I've signed up for and am sticking with."
