Sad news today, as the Maine Woods Trail Marathon has been canceled this year.

The Maine Woods Trail Marathon has been cancelled for this year! A storm went over the area last week and took down many trees which made the trail impassable in many places. Six bridges were washed out, one cannot be found.

The race will still go on next year, but there is no estimate yet for when the damage will be repaired and the bridges restored. There will be a sign at the starting line in Mount Blue State Park, but hopefully everybody that was planning on running will find out about the cancellation before heading over there.

I’d like to run this race but had no plans to run it this year. I didn’t actually learn about it until a few months ago. Next year I will hopefully be able to fit it into my training schedule.
