Overview: Solo 5km Trail Run (loop)

For those who have never traveled to Grand Lake Stream you're in for a real treat. For those who have, welcome back.

Taking place on the western shore of the West Grand Lake and co-hosted by the Downeast Lakes Land Trust, this race consisster of a 5.1 mile loop on single track hiking and dirt, motorized-vehicles paths. The terrain is coarse at times and runners should expect roots, rocks and mud throughout large sections of the course. But for each drop of sweat you shed, you'll be rewarded with complete isolation. No cars, no homes (except for a few small cabins) and no pavement. This is a true wilderness trail run designed for those looking to immerse themselves in nature.

Downeast Lakes Land Trust is dedicated to the Downeast economy and environment. They protect lakeshores, manage a Community Forest, improve fish and wildlife habitats, provide public recreation opportunities. offer educational programs and support jobs in the forest and on the water. Baxter Outdoors is grateful for the opportunity to partner with DLLT. 

This race is the day before DLLT's 13th annual West Grand Lake Canoe Racers. Bring your running shoes for Saturday, and your boat and paddle for Sunday, and make a weekend of it in Grand Lake Stream!
