Notice: Our Sunday OSGR return was a success.  We feel we were safely able to enjoy our group again!  Our decision to start up was based on the State of Maine increasing the number of people allowed to gather to be under 50.  We will still limit our group to 20.  We will insist that runners physically distance themselves before, during, and after the group run (6 foot minimum between those not living together).  Rather than gathering in the parking lot, we will loosely assemble in the field next to it.  This way we should be able to maintain our minimum distance without impacting others in the parking lot.  If we feel there is non-compliance, we will likely go back to our group run challenges.  Please help us to make this happen!!!
❤️ Plans are in the works for Saturday runs to start up August 8th.  Stay tuned!

Trail Monster Running hosts regular Old School Group Runs (OSGR or affectionately, Oscar) on Sundays at 9am, and Saturday Group runs (times and locations announced weekly),  with additional runs scheduled through the TMR Forum or our FaceBook page. Anyone with a serious interest in trail running is welcome to join us as long as you aren’t afraid to get your feet wet. Our groups have a wide range of ages, paces and abilities represented.

Saturday  – Location and time announced weekly

  • Each week a different Trail Monster will lead a group run at a location of their choice.  It can be any type of run – an adventure run, a long run, a mountain run/hike, a fast paced trail run, or even an easy Brad run.
  • Saturday, August 8th 8:30am – Plan on 10 to 11 miles on the Topsham Powerlines and Gone Fishing trails.  We’ll head out old school style, including blackberry picking stops along the way (unless Danielle eats them all this week). We’ll also run the single track together. Once we return to the power lines, we can split up at everyone’s own paces (no way to get lost).

Sunday 8:00 AMBradbury Mt State Park

  • Miles vary, but there are always way to cut it short if the OSGR has more on its plate than you want.  OSGR makes it work for runners of all paces.  Expect the normal runs to be 6 to 8 miles unless posted.  We may occasionally mix up the location, but we’ll always give plenty or notice on Facebook or the TMR Forum.
  • August 9th– OSGR will be doing a Breaker lap or two.  This way folks will be able to familiarize themselves with the course, making a faster Virtual Breaker a possibility!
