About This Event

Join us for the 9th annual Race Through The Woods trail race, sponsored by First National Bank. Explore the exciting mix of single and double-track trails over rolling terrain in this challenging racecourse.

Racing starts at 10:00 am. Racers will have two course options to choose from: a 13.1 mile half-marathon or a 5.5 mile race (5.5 milers share the course with half-marathoners, same start time).  This single loop course brings you over steep hills, through the woods, past beautiful ponds and has about 1,000 feet elevation.

This race is open to beginners, novices, and experienced trail runners alike. If you’ve never been in a trail race this is a great, fun event to start with.  After the race everyone is encouraged to stick around and enjoy a bonfire, hot cider or a beer from Sheepscot Valley Brewing Company one of our sponsors. Light local lunch options will also be available after the races.

Kids 10 years and under can participate in a fun obstacle race starting at about 10:30 am (after the other races have taken off). The race will be only somewhat competitive; the goal is really just to have fun. Each racer will receive a ribbon. Register online starting April 1; registration for kids’ race is free.  The course will feature small hurdles, jumps, and mazes. After the official race, kids are welcome to enjoy the course at their own pace. Thanks to our Kids Race Sponsor - Maine Helicopters!

Race fees are $35 for the half marathon, and $25 for the 5.5 miler. Long sleeve technical shirts will be available for purchase with registration. Prizes (homemade PIE!!) will be given to first place finishers (men and women) and in age categories. Prizes will also include local goods donated by businesses and volunteers, and gift certificates to HVNC from Midcoast Conservancy.

REGISTRATION OPENS APRIL 1.
