About Us

Our Story

Let’s move together. Baxter Outdoors’s races and events are designed to celebrate New England’s natural spaces, foster community around the great outdoors, and be accessible to all who wish to join in on the fun. We produce annual events featuring trail running, mountain biking, outdoor concerts, film screenings, snowshoeing, nordic skiing, and a whole lot more.

Our races and events highlight the unique landscapes of New England and the stewards who care for the land. From Cumberland County to Grand Lake Stream to Millinocket, we work with land trusts, private landowners, and public lands to preserve what matters to us most. Good people, hard work, beautiful land. Let’s get outside together and celebrate what’s right in our own backyard.
