Riverlands 100



May 13-14, 2017

After a hard winter in Maine, we are itching to run long again on muddy and dirty snow-free trails.  And because what’s better than a race to look forward to, we devised a way to get our fix this coming May.  Welcome to Maine’s first 100 mile trail race, the Riverlands 100!  Solo runners will do 5 laps of a beautiful 20-mile out-and-back trail at the Androscoggin Riverlands State Park in Turner, ME.  The trail is a rolling ATV path that has a little of everything: river views of the Androscoggin (listen for loons!), dense forest, ups and downs, some rocks and roots and hopefully some good mud.  There is not much flat, but it has the potential to be a fast 100 for experienced ultra runners and a perfectly challenging, but do-able 100 for first-timers.  Thinking of making it a party?  We will also be offering a 100 mile relay for teams of 2-5.  Each relay runner must do at least one complete 20-mile section, but it’s up to you how to divide 100 miles among your team (e.g., 2 members do 40 and 60 miles each or 4 members do 20, 20, 20, 40 miles, etc).  The Riverlands 100 is a trail race put on by experienced trail runners for people who like to push their limits.  Come join us!

Aid stations are about every 5 miles along the course. Drop bags may be left at each aid station.
