Training Runs & Trail Maintenance

The Race

The 19th annual  Baker Trail UltraChallenge 50-miler takes place on August 26. It sold out (months ago) and now has a growing wait list.  (Add yourself to the solo 50-miler event wait list by going: here). Whether you're registered for the race or not, everyone is welcome on our free training runs which span the gorgeous northern section of the Baker Trail and overlap with some exceptionally scenic sections of the North Country Trail.
