Bold Coast Runners

Downeast Maine and the Maritimes

Next Group Run: Sunday 27 November, 7:00am Machias - Trail

What: 4 miles, 6 miles or 8 miles on the Machias River Trails. An easy undulating single track descent from the trailhead to the river (the short wooden bog bridges can be slippery, especially when wet, and there are some rooty sections) then a nice smooth couple of single track miles along the Machias River (apart from one up and down hill). For 4 miles return to the trailhead along the level gravel Sunrise Trail. For 6 miles add the hilly single track loop of the Homestead Trail and back along the Sunrise Trail. For 8 miles do the Homestead Trail Loop but then return back along the River Trail.

Where: Meet at the parking lot on Court Street / Rt. 1A on the western side of Machias (beyond the hospital).

When: 7:00am Sunday 27 November 2022

Note: There is no hunting on Sundays, but wearing bright colours is still good practice.

We'll have the usual sharing of food and drinks back at the parking lot.

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 - note that you don't have to be a club member to join us in any of these activities, just show up at the appointed time and place)
