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 members can send out a group message with time, date, place & details to firstname.lastname@example.org
Next Club Run: - Sunday 22 March 7:00am Cobscook Park gate.
Upcoming Club Events:
Yes, we're still doing group "distance" runs most weekends - we run together but keep our distance. Members of the club get direct emails about these and some get posted in our Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/boldcoastrunners/ Feel free to come along to anything posted, or join the club to be sure to receive all our email announcements: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VOcz9l3oFQFYM6YJuhj2jcPK4wdTh7I2/view
- Don’t show up if you are feeling ill or have flu-like symptoms.
- Don't share fluids. Carry your own fluids to avoid contact with others on course.
- Don't share towels, food, gels, or any other item that runners normally share freely.
- Do wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after using the port-a-john.
- Do not spit or “nose rocket” your nose in public – bring along tissues or a small towel or a good old-fashioned hanky if you need to get rid of some snot during the race.
- Do practice social distancing - ensure appropriate spacing between runners; the current recommendation is at least six feet of separation.
- Do avoid close-group selfies.
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.
