Maine Huts & Trails Backwoods Duathlon

Saturday, July 31, 2021
Carrabassett Valley

Event Description

Welcome to Baxter Outdoors’ 2nd race of the season. This adventure takes us deep into the Western Mountains of Maine to Carrabassett Valley where racers will be running and/or biking along the many contours of the Maine Huts & Trails network. This course will begin at the Stratton Brook trail head. The approx 10km trail run course will hug the single track trails along the Carrabassett River, returning on the Narrow Gauge trail. The approx 15km Bike course will lead athletes down the Narrow Gauge, up Crommets, and down Newton’s Revenge.

This race can be tacked solo or as a team. There is a solo run option, a bike option, a team duathlon option, and a solo duathlon option. Bikers will leave first, with runners shortly thereafter. Unlike years past where this was run as a true relay, this year all racers (even teammates) will be out on the course at the same time. Runners will begin the course just minutes after their teammate bikers have begun their legs. Team times will be calculated after both team members have completed their leg. Solo Duathletes will begin their first leg 15 minutes before other athletes so everyone finishes within a tighter time frame.

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