Blackstrap Hell Trail Challenge Course MapLooking for a good run this weekend in Southern Maine? The first Blackstrap Hell Trail Challenge is this Sunday, November 16th, at 10:00 a.m. in Falmouth.

The course is about 10 kilometers long, there are no aid stations, and the course runs the gamut from narrow single track to wide snowmobile trail, from open woods to rivers, ponds and waterfalls. The trail is covered in rocks, roots, mud, leaves, and contains some wicked steep uphill climbs and lightning fast descents. As the race notice reads:

Hell has no water stations.

I’m going to have to change my weekend plans so that I can take part. If anybody is going to be in the area and wants the details on the race, then leave a comment below or send me an email and I will forward you the race information.

The race requires pre-registration, but the only cost is bumped shins and bruised egos. There will be a pot luck BBQ at the race director’s house afterwards.
