Virtual Bradbury Bruiser

This year, in order to continue the Bradbury Dirt Series while also complying with state guidelines and prioritizing the safety of participants, the Bradbury Bruiser will be a virtual trail race.
To be considered an official Virtual Bruiser finisher, registered runners must complete the official race course at Bradbury Mountain State Park by the end of September and submit their workout data for approval.

Instructions:

  1. Register for the race on RunReg. Registration costs $10.
  2. Run the official Bruiser course before October 1, 2020. Course maps (gpx and pdf) are available for download on the Trail Monster Running website, https://trailmonsterrunning.org/bradburydirt
  3. Submit your race data to [email protected]. This should include your total time, without stopping/pausing your watch during the run, and an attached (or linked) screenshot of the course you ran (from Strava, MapMyRun, or some other workout app).
  4. Await approval of your data within 48 hours. Only registered runners will be approved.
  5. Results will be posted and regularly updated here, with the final results of all finishers being available by October 1st.

General considerations:

  • Results from runners who’ve stopped/paused their watch during the run will not be approved. Treat this like a real race and please be honest about your time.
  • Results from runners who did not complete the official route will not be approved. The race course will not be marked, but a course map and gps data is available for your use.
  • You may run the course and submit data as many times as you like on a single registration, though preferably with some sympathy for those of us reviewing submissions and recording results.
  • Please note that the Park entry fee is NOT included in registration. Please respect Park rules/policies/guidelines while participating in the Virtual Breaker.
  • The Bruiser will be a virtual race following the same format as the Scuffle and Breaker, but run during the month of September. Registration for the Bruiser will open by September 1st.
  • T-shirts, virtual or actual, will not be available for the Virtual Scuffle or Breaker. However, runners who officially complete all three races – Virtual Scuffle, Virtual Breaker, and Virtual Bruiser – will still receive the hallowed Bradbury Mountain Trail Running Series Badass hoodie, forever announcing you as a trail running badass and setting you apart from regular people.

Please direct any questions to [email protected].

This year’s race may be virtual, but the accomplishment is still genuine. We hope you enjoy your race. Good Luck!

A mix of single and double-track trails with a few rolling hills, a great introduction to Maine trail running. This race is dedicated to CHRIS DOUGLASS, a Trail Monster runner and adventurer who’s life ended too soon.

Two laps of an exceptionally hilly, technical single-track trail loop that takes you up and down Bradbury Mountain more times than you can count. If you’re not begging for mercy during the first lap you will be on the second.

A crazy twisting, turning 12 mile loop of single-track trails filled with rocks, roots, bumps and hills. Save something for the last two miles, this is where you will earn your bruises.

To sign up for all three races of the series:

I’M A BAD ASS, SIGN ME UP FOR ALL THREE

Runners completing all three races of the Bradbury Mountain Trail Running Series will receive a special Bad Ass prize, and will be known throughout the land as a Trail Running Bad Ass.

All races are held at Bradbury Mountain State Park
528 Hallowell Road, Pownal, ME

Start time for all races: 9:00 AM

Registration/number pick-up will begin at 8:00 AM

All preregistered runners will receive a t-shirt, race day entries (if the cap is not met) may get a shirt after the race.

EACH RACE IS CAPPED AT 160 ENTRIES (150 + 40 (minus 30 no shows) = 160)

When this number is reached registration will close and no more entries will be accepted. There is no waiting list. If we reach this number before race day there will be no race day registration. There will be no number transfers, we’re counting on a few of you signing up and not making to the race. NO EXCEPTIONS. We do this to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all participants, and because of limited parking at Bradbury Mountain State Park.
It’s about quality, not quantity.

Updates on the number of entries remaining will appear on the TMR home page.

  • Be aware that trails are open to other users of the park during the race, including mountain bikes
  • Please do not wear headphones during the race, it is important to hear what’s going on around you: “Dude, you’re off course!”
  • Do not drop any trash on the trail, leave cups and other trash near the aid stations
