Bold Coast Runners

Downeast Maine and the Maritimes

Who we are: a welcoming, encouraging and supportive group of crazy people who run the roads and trails of way Downeast Maine, the Canadian Borderlands, and beyond. We welcome everyone, from beginners to old-timers and from tortoises to hares. We run distances ranging from 1 mile to 50 miles and on anything from smooth tar to rugged single track. If it's hot: we run, if it rains: we run, if it's snowy: we run in snowshoes, if icy: in spikes. We just run, mostly for fun, but some of us are also competitive!

Club Runs: most Sunday's at 7:00am somewhere in coastal Washington County or just over the border in Hancock County or Charlotte County, Canada (location and time set by group leader).

Other Runs: if you're running and want to invite others to join you send out a group message with time, date, place & details to

Next Club Run: 7am Sunday at the CUTLER BOLD COAST trailhead. 10 miles or 6 miles of pretty gnarly and technical single track. It normally takes me around 2 hrs 45 minutes to do the 10 mile. You may want to carry water - particularly if it stays hot and humid. We can go slower (I can't go much faster!) depending who shows up. There's a crossover path half way which makes the 6 mile loop.

As both beginners and long-timers we enjoy non-competitive weekly group activities hosted by individual members, as well as engaging in friendly competition and organizing and participating in local events, or travelling together to more distant events. We:

  • promote participation in active, human-powered, endurance-based outdoor sports, particularly running;
  • encourage, support and challenge each other as athletes and would be athletes of all ages and abilities;
  • organize weekly group training sessions;
  • promote and support existing races and events;
  • organize, and promote participation in, our own local events;
  • obtain discounted entry to some races for our members.
