Just a quick announcement to anybody interested in running at the Pineland Farms Trail Challenge on Memorial Day Weekend in New Gloucester, Maine:

The Pineland Farms Trail Challenge is coming up on Sunday, May 24th.

After this Sunday the 10th the price for each race will increase by $5 so sign up soon! This year we have capped the 25k race at 250 and right now there are only 80 places left, these are sure to go quickly over the next two weeks.

We are looking for volunteers on race day and to help with set-up the day before, let us know if you can help. This year we are looking for school sports boosters clubs to take on aid stations, in return we will make a donation to each club. If anyone has connections to a group that may be interested please let us know.

This Saturday the 9th we will be running the race course at Pineland Farms starting at 8:00am. Meet in the YMCA parking lot.

The Trail Challenge consists of 3 races at 25k, 50k and 50 miles. All 3 races are run on the trails at Pineland Farms, which are like big, soft and grassy roads (with a lot of hills.)
