Event Description: This is a small, low-frills event with a lot of history and dedicated volunteers who support ultra running. The flat, scenic road course is a series of 4-mile loops. There are a few small gradual hills that will utilize different muscle groups, but nothing so steep that it would require you to walk. A dirt apron exists along many stretches of the road. Runners will pass fields that stretch out, and woods that provide shade. The few passing cars will travel roads with a 35 MPH posted speed limit. Runners may hear the occasional blast from a hunter's shotgun, or the buzz of planes taking off and landing at the nearby Brunswick Naval Air Station. All runners will start by going out-and-back 1 mile. Participants of the 50-Mile event will complete 12 loops. Participants of the 50Km event will complete 7 loops, and then go out-and-back another ½ mile.
Start Times: Both races start at 6:30 a.m.
 Course Support: A large group of enthusiastic volunteers will provide support at the start/finish line. There will be plenty of appropriate foods and drinks for the ultra runner. A bathroom is available every 4 miles. A self-serve aid station will be positioned 2-miles from the start/finish area. Post-race showers are available at nearby Bowdoin College.
Entry Fee: $30 before 10/3, $40 after 10/4. All runners who registered before 10/4 will be guaranteed a long-sleeve technical running shirt. Make checks payable to:
Maine Track Club.
