Bold Coast Runners

Downeast Maine and the Maritimes

Next Group Run: Cobscook Bay State Park. Sunday 25 September. 7:00am

What: 5-7 mile run (approx 1 hour). We start with 1/2 mile on tar then turn onto the gravel park roads where loops of various distances are possible. The gravel is smooth and the roads mostly flat - there are a few gentle hills. It is forested but we will pass camp sites and get occasional views across the water of Whiting Bay. The 1/2 mile of tar can be avoided by using about 1/4 mile of easy single track from the boat launch through to the gravel roads. While swimming from the boat ramp after the run is possible it will not be long past the low tide so conditions might not be great - the bottom is rough and slippery and the water cold and potentially a little thick. If you want to bring some food or drink to share afterwards we can resume our post-run tailgate parties.

Where: We'll meet at the boat ramp parking lot on Whiting Bay on the edge of Cobscook Bay State Park.

(note: you will need to turn on satellite view as the road down to the boat ramp is not shown on the map). Coming from Whiting on Route 1 turn onto South Edmunds Road and proceed approximately 1.3 miles to a turning on the right clearly marked with a big boat access sign. The parking is down by the water. Note, this is not the park entrance, you will pass that about 1/4 mile from Route 1. You can also get onto South Edmunds Road from the north (Dennysville). The boat ramp turn is then on your left after about 2.4 miles.

When: 7:00am Sunday 25 September.

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!
