Schedule subject to change - check back often

Please contact us with ideas, request for Sunday morning routes (you can but don't have to host a requested group run)

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)
