2017 Trail Fest PosterThe second and sure-to-be EPIC Camden Snow Bowl Trail Fest is coming right up on Saturday, Sept. 30! Rising 1,000 feet above sea level, the Snow Bowl plays host to Baxter Outdoors’ eighth trail running and second and final duathlon event in the New England Trail Series.

The 5K run climbs one side of Ragged Mountain, rewarding runners with spectacular views from the top of the triple chair lift, before winding down the Red Line Trail to return to the lodge.

The 10K bike ride will climb the same Kuller Trail, but diverge off onto the single-track of Ragged Mountain, before dropping down the G5 Connector and looping around the fabulous Goose River Trails.

This event is not to be missed! Rain or shine.

Race registration begins at 8:30 a.m., with a shotgun start for the 5K run at 10 a.m.! Solo, team, run-only, bike-only, and run AND bike… we’ve got your option! We also have a 3K run option for those wanting to experience trail running without the 1,000-foot climb. And it doesn’t end there…

The FEST! Co-produced by the Trail Runners of Midcoast Maine and the Midcoast Maine New England Mountain Biking Association (McNEMBA), Trail Fest will include but not be limited to: pre-race eats, rood trucks, beverages, live band music, gear tents, outdoor recreation vendors, guided bike trail tours, bike demos and more! The Camden Snow Bowl Trail Fest will keep you and your tired muscles smiling for days!!
