Event Description

Welcome to Grand Lake Stream, one of Maine’s fly fishing meccas and home to a fantastic trail network as well!

The Downeast Lakes 5-miler is one of our favorite races of the year, produced in partnership with the Downeast Lakes Land Trust. The course covers 5 miles of terrain spread across single track and double track trails. It begins on a logging road and finishes along 2.5 miles of coastline trail on the west of banks of West Grand Lake. Enjoy one of our more remote races where amazing views, isolation, and virgin trails combine to offer one of Maine’s best kept secrets.

Due to Covid- 19 and considerations of social distancing, we will be sending runners out in waves of 15 every 5 minutes.

Following the race, enjoy snacks and some cooldown beverages courtesy of Baxter Brewing Co. $1 per mile covered in the race will be donated to the Downeast Lakes Land Trust.

Race entries capped at 50

We thank our corporate sponsor for donating $1 for each mile covered in this race, to our featured beneficiary.
