Maine Huts & Trails Backwoods Duathlon

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, descend along the Carrabassett River, and take racers back up the Crommetts Overlook Trail. Runners will veer to the left and descend along the Newton’s revenge trail for a total running course distance of approx 7 miles (11.5k). At the top of Crommetts, bikers will continue to ascend until ultimately descending on the area’s capstone trail, Oak Hill Knoll. The total bike course distance is approx 9 miles (15k).

This race can be tacked solo or as a team. There is a standalone trail run option as well. Bikers will leave first, with runners shortly thereafter. Unlike years past where this was run as a 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 winners times will be calculated after both team members have completed their leg.

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